-Peperomia String of Turtles are a very special succulent that have round leaves that have patterns that look like mini turtle shells.
*Limited Plant* - Limited plants are special-buys that we do not carry and stock on a regular basis. This means that we only buy a handful of these special plants, and when they are out, they are out! So act fast, supplies are limited!
-Peperomia have quickly become one of my personal favorite plants to have on display around my home. Peperomia are especially easy plants to take care of, that thrive indoors. Peperomia are a cross between succulents and tropical plants. Depending on the type of peperomia, some have thicker leaves like succulents and some have thinner leaves like tropical plants.
-Peperomia String of Turtles has medium leaves that are thicker, similar to succulent leaves.
Tropical plants thrive in bright-light locations, but kept indoors. Gently mist the plants 2x a week, or more/less if needed given your climate. These specific peperomia prefer to have their soil almost dry in between watering. Tropical plants can be grown outside in covered shade areas, but only during warmer months if it gets cold where you live. For best growing advice, we recommend researching growing recommendations in your area.
-For String of Turtles specifically, they thrive when bottom-watered, as they like to be kept moist, but not overwatered!

Depending on the other items in the order, it may ship semi-bare root to keep the delicate hearts safer. **If ordered outside theContinental US (lower 48 states), it will be shipped bare roots.
-6in Pots are shipped in their growing pots (unless outside of 48 main states, then they will ship semi-soil!)
