This adorable vining plant naturally grows in the rainforests of Brazil, but is known for being super adaptable, and is a well-loved houseplant. The Peperomia family are succulent adjacent tropical plants, so they can withstand periods of drought, but do well in warm and moderately humid conditions.
This plant thrives in bright indirect sunlight -- direct sunlight will scorch its leaves, but too little light, and it won't produce new leaves very often, and they'll turn out to be very small. String of turtles prefers slightly moist soil, but its root systems aren't incredibly deep, so we recommend potting them in shallower pots, and watering once a week in warmer months, and once every other week in colder months.
Make sure your String of Turtles isn't near a drafty window or under an AC or heater vent -- while it's succulent adjacent, this plant still wants needs humidity and warmth to thrive!
This plant is completely safe for pets!
