Peperomia prostrata (String of Turtles)


Peperomia prostrata is a trailing, vining, ground cover peperomia, named for its unique “turtle shell” pattern on its leaf surfaces. Very easy to grow with minimal care AND pet-friendly. 

Peperomia grow best with indirect, filtered light and only need to be watered when the soil feels dry. Pot up in a well-draining soil mix to ensure adequate drainage. Stems tend to rot with too much moisture.
