The 'String of Turtles' plant looks exactly as its common name describes. A row... of turtles. Its succulent leaves have an almost translucent layered appearance, with tortoiseshell-like patterns underneath.

These peperomias do not need to be replanted often as they have fairly shallow root systems. You must be careful when placing them in very large pots, as this can cause the soil to become too soggy.




Pet lovers will be happy to know that these plants are non-toxic. But please don't let the cute one nibble on those pretty leaves!
