Peperomia prostrata, or “String of Turtles,” is a succulent native to warm climate zones and rainforests. It is a perfect plant for people that don’t have a lot of space, for example, who want to place it on the desk or a shelf and forget about regular repotting, as for other plants.
The string of turtles is a small plant with succulent round leaves on pinkish strands. It makes creeping vines, so if you put it on the top shelf, don’t be surprised when they will spread along the bottom of it. This plant can be perfect in your rock garden (if you want to plant it outdoors) because of its shallow root system.
