Peperomia prostrata | String of Turtles

Peperomia prostrata | String of Turtles


Family: Piperaceae


A cute little Peperomia whose leaves look exactly like turtle shells, hence the affectionate common name ‘String of Turtles’. This is a personal favourite of mine and one of our best selling plants. A must have for any house plant collection, Peperomia prostrata is easy to grow and does not require much water or light.

Perfect for a terrarium / vivarium as it loves high humidity and stays quite small as it climbs.
