  • Botanical Name: Peperomia Prostrata
  • Common Name(s):¬¨‚ĆString of Turtles
  • Description:¬¨‚ĆThis tiny little Brazilian native succulent that thrives in a climate that mimics those found in the average house.¬¨‚ĆIt is small in size and has a slow growth rate, reaching full maturity in three to five years.¬¨‚ĆThat same leaf shape is what gives the plant its common name. Each one looks like the shell of a miniature turtle strung together. Every tiny leaf on its trailing vine has intricate multi-colored patterns covering its surface. The colors become muted with age and eventually become bicolored by maturity, usually a darker green contrasted by light green.
