String of turtles, also known as Peperomia prostrata, is a succulent native to the Brazilian rainforest. This plant is known for its lovely trailing habit and the stunning variegated patterns on its leaves that resemble a turtle’s shell.

String of turtles plants love bright, indirect sunlight. Use a well-draining soil mix consisting mainly of organics; one that is rich in peat is ideal. Because this plant is native to Brazilian rainforests, it thrives in cool and humid environments. Since they store water in their leaves, this plant does not need to be watered often. Let the potting mix dry out in between waterings, and do not overwater or you could put your plant at risk of root rot. Hardiness zones range from 10-11.
