Peperomia prostrata - string of turtles

This little succulent charmer creeps and hugs contours below it as it trails along.

Intensity of leaf variegation and red stems (!) increases with light intensity.

Each 2” pot has three well-rooted cuttings.

Stem tips sport insignificant inflorescences each year. Although not colorful, these green clusters of tiny flowers are a fun feature and do shed a small amount of pollen.

Sun requirement: Indoor
Care instructions: Bright, indirect light is preferable to highlight variegation on leaves and stem color. Moist, well-draining, organic potting mix preferred. Typical, ambient home humidity levels are ideal; 45-55% RH or so. No need to mist. Feed regularly.
