Peperomia prostrata is a nice plant for terrarium culture or outside of terrariums and is native to Brazil. It has beautiful, succulent leaves that resemble tiny turtles, hence the common name, string of turtles. It does well in moderate light and moderate humidity. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species, but careful not to overwater once rooted as the leaves are succulent in nature.
All of our cuttings have adventitious, aerial roots. Our rooted specimens will have at least a few active roots and will be established plants. Our plants are grown in high humidity in terrariums and greenhouses, therefore may need acclimation to the average home humidity / environment. Please contact us for acclimation information if you are not planning to use this plant in a terrarium, greenhouse, or humid room.
