String of Turtles (Peperomia Prostrata): The Ultimate Houseplant for Beginners

Houseplants are a richly vast and diversified world, yet few species say so much more than the String of Turtles (Peperomia Prostrata). This is really a gem from the depths of the South American tropical rainforest. It is a perennial succulent, so there is actually no limit except for visual prettiness. It is a no-fuss pursuit perfect for neophytes.
The String of Turtles originates from the cloud forests of Ecuador.

The String of Turtles plant is from somewhere beneath the canopy of the thick, humid rainforests of South America. Much smaller, rounder leaves that look a lot like many green turtles swimming in a sea of vines; hence the pretty name.

Why a String of Turtles Houseplant?

Good for Beginner

The String of Turtles is the most forgiving plant among all houseplants. It grows relatively slow and would take not too much, or no attention at all. It doesn’t need water too often.

Beauty in its Trailing Nature And though its care needs are minimal, it’s not visually a subtle plant: With its usual cascading nature of dense foliage and patterned leaves, trailing selections make good choices for both hanging planters and table centerpieces with the vines trailing prettily about.

Taking Care of Your String of Turtles:

Water moderately but with good soil drainage. Plants, much like human beings, do well with indirect light as they would receive it in the tropical rainforest. Feed monthly through the growing season with a balanced fertilizer and your plants will stay looking their best.


A part of the large family of houseplants, String of Turtles, it stands distinguished, to say the least. Not just the aesthetics but the native tropics from where it comes make the plant stand out. Whether you’re a green-fingered guru or a rank amateur, the string of turtles could bring a touch of the wild into your home.
