String of Turtles Care


String of turtles (Peperomia prostrata) are a member of the Peperomia genus but their care is more like string of pearls or string of hearts. That is, their roots are small and easily waterlogged so the soil must dry quickly. String of turtles are easy but unlike many other easy plants, you can't cut corners or say, "It will be fine," when it comes to soil type, pot size, light, and watering needs. Once you get those things right though, string of turtles are a breeze. Oh, and string of turtles are native to the Brazilian rainforest so while humidity is not necessary to the plant's survival, they LOVE LOVE LOVE humidity.
