Wow! Such a beautiful, elegant plant! We absolutely love the full shape and fabulous foliage on this houseplant! The String of Turtles or Peperomia prostrata is unique and challenging to find Peperomia with tiny, round and green leaves with delicate markings that look very similar to a strong of turtle shells. Beautiful!
It is very versatile in the ways it can be grown; it has small, round, glossy green leaves and will look great in a hanging basket, kokedama ball, or a pot. It will quickly fill in and create a thick mass of vines and leaves.
