Technically a peperomia, we love this String of Turtles for it's tiny little circular turtleshell leaves and rewarding growth.
The String of Turtles is a succulent plant, which means they are more tolerant of DRY soil than wet soil. Over-watering this plant is very common, and each of its watering sessions should be spaced out. The topsoil should dry out before it is watered again. When the weather becomes warmer, you may want to spray the leaves with some water as well. * Important, best is to bottom water, leave /soak it in water for 45 minutes then remove. Never top water. Let it dry completely between next watering.
Available in the following packaging based on your preference:
Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 2-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
Olympia Pot - The plant will arrive in this 4" round raised grey/ white marble painted and sealed porcelain raised on a white metal stand.
