String of Turtles (botanical name, Peperomia Prostrata), is slow growing semi succulent, and like String of Hearts, they are pretty easy to care for if given the right conditions.
Their round full leaves have a distinct turtle shell pattern and it's trailing delicate stems make it an unusual and popular choice or plant collectors. It has a shallow root system and grows slowly, meaning you don't have to repot as often as most other plants.
Pot Diameter: 8cm
Light aspect: Medium to bright light. It won't enjoy full sun all day as it can burn the delicate leaves, but being semi succulent, it will need some direct light throughout the day.
Watering: Water sparingly. Allow to soil to completely dry out between watering. If the round leaves start to get mushy, it's had too much water. Approx every three weeks is enough!
Feeding: Diluted liquid fertilizer every 3 weeks in Spring
Toxic: Non toxic
