Say hey to the Peperomia prostrata aka String of Turtles. These dudes have been so highly sought after for the better part of a year. They have these delicate, small, heavily veined leaves that resemble, you guessed it, a turtle shell. Treat them similarly to a succulent and they will thrive and turn up the goods! They look best when allowed to trail down a pot. They are grown and sold in a 118mm pot.
