The String of Turtles is a variety of peperomia that thrives in warm, humid climates, as they are tropical plants. The leaves are small in size and the plant has a slow growth rate, reaching full maturity in three to five years. The plant's attractive leaf shape also makes it a favorite to use in fairy gardens, container gardens, and terrariums. That same leaf shape is what gives the plant its common name. Each one looks like the shell of a miniature turtle strung together. Every tiny leaf on its trailing vine has intricate multi-colored patterns covering its surface, the colors become muted with age and eventually become bicolored by maturity, typically a darker green contrasted by light green.
