Peperomia prostrata - String of TurtlesRegular price $16.00
Matte, round leaves with a tortoiseshell-like pattern. The leaves will become thick the more water they hold. Great for hanging baskets, the delicate leaves don't like to be played with but they sure are pretty to look at! These beauties require a free draining soil and plenty of airflow, mostly thriving on neglect.
