Also known as “String of Turtles,” the Peperomia prostrata is a slow-growing perennial succulent and popular houseplant. The tiny, fleshy, ornamental leaves look delicate and attractive in hanging baskets. The vining plat is known to form a thick mat and then trail over the sides of a container. They prefer wet, humid conditions but are relatively easy to care for in normal indoor conditions. The plant does not produce significant flowers. When it does, they are small, unscented, and cream-colored.
Peperomia prostrata is native to the rainforests of Brazil. It grows best in bright light. Allow the soil to dry out before watering.
