Peperomia prostrata (String of Turtles)
Peperomia prostrata is arguably one of the cutest and more unusual Peperomias. Nicknamed String of Turtles, this succulent vine has fresh green round leaves that pinch to a point. The pattern is also reminiscent of a turtle’s back.
Peperomia is a genus of around 1500 species of plants in the Piperaceae family. They occur throughout the tropics and subtropics, although there is a higher occurrence in Central America and northern South America. Most of them have small, succulent leaves and produce flowers that appear like spikes, or rat’s tails. Care for your Peperomia by allowing the medium to dry out between waterings or waiting for the leaves to become soft. Place it in a bright shaded location and use a growth fertilizer.
