String Of Turtles (2″ Pot)

Peperomia Prostrata, commonly known as String Of Turtles, is a delightful, easy to care for species in the Peperomia genus. Some other common names include Turtle Vine, Chain of Turtles, and Jade Necklace. This native of Ecuador is a trailing species with small, round and succulent leaves and is a perfect plant for smaller spaces.

Like the common name suggests, the leaf pattern of String of Turtles is reminiscent of turtle shells. It has a vining habit and forms a beautiful, lush mat of foliage and is perfect for smaller hanging baskets or to trail down from a shelf.

Light: Place your String of Turtles immediately in front of a nice, bright window that gets mostly indirect light. Providing your plant with 2-3 hours of direct sun is very beneficial, but avoid all day full sun.

Water: It is important to always water thoroughly, but you should allow at least the top half of the potting mix to dry out before watering again. To be completely safe, allow 1/4 to 1/2 of your potting mix to dry out and then water thoroughly until water escapes the drainage hole.

NOTE: The images above show an example of what your plant will look like but may not be your exact plant. Botany Tropicals examines all plants and ensures they are robust, healthy, and pest-free before sale!

Worried about your plants arriving safely in cooler weather? Add this insurance to your order!  We highly recommend adding Cold Weather Protection Insurance if HIGH temperatures are below 45 degrees in your location. Keep in mind your plant(s) may travel thru colder loactions on its way to you.

Cold Weather Protection Insurance is simple: We’ll personally check the weather conditions along your plant(s) journey from our home to yours, and take all the necessary precautions no matter the cost (such as using heat packs, special packing procedures, or shipping on certain days) to ensure that your plant arrives safely. If, in the rare event your plant doesn’t arrive safely, due to cold temps we’ll replace or refund it at no cost to you.

If Cold Weather Protection Insurance is NOT purchased, we are not able to cover any damages that our team determines are related to cold weather.

You can add Winter Insurance any time up until 24 hours before your order ships by placing a new order containing just Winter Insurance and shooting us an email at Botanytropicals@gmail.com to let us know.

Once purchased, Cold Weather Protection Insurance is non-refundable.

Purchasing this covers up to 6 plants in the same order no need to purchase more than one unless your ordering more than 6 plants.
