Peperomia prostrata is a miniature species whose tiny, bead-like leaves are fleshy and succulent to the touch, emerging along creeping, pinkish vines. Easily one of our favorites in the genus, this plant is often called Sting of Turtles due to the beautiful, shell-like patterning on its leaves. Native to the rainforests of Brazil, we’ve found that this plant roots readily and is easy to propagate, though it is exceedingly difficult to find – a Peperomia for the collector!
• Light: Select a location with medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top few centimeters of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Succulent leaves make String of Turtles especially sensitive to soggy soil. Use a loose, well-draining mix. Wrap and pin down to root and make for a lush plant. Pet friendly!
