The String of Turtles is a striking, trailing plant with leaves that look like tiny turtle shells 🐢

They require bright, indirect light and do not like to sit in wet soil. The leaves closest to the soil will rot if the soil is kept too moist. I advise sitting it in a shallow bowl of water to allow the plant to soak up the water, as it avoids directly wetting the delicate leaves.

The String of Turtles requires a well draining potting mix, you can achieve this by adding perlite and horticultural grit to your potting mix.

8cm pot.
