We love the full shape and fabulous foliage on this string of turtles, it's a beautiful houseplant and well worth keeping. The Peperomia prostrata is unique with tiny, round, green leaves with delicate markings that look very similar to a string of turtle shells. Beautiful!
It is versatile in how it can be grown; it has small, round, glossy green leaves and will look great in a hanging basket, kokedama ball, or pot. It will quickly fill in and create a thick mass of vines and leaves.
