Plant Care Tips
LIGHT: The String of Turtles grows well in bright indirect light. Position your plant in an east or west facing window with room for the plant to cascade down. They’ll even grow under fluorescent lights which also makes them great for offices or apartments too. If they don’t get enough light, growth will slow and direct sunlight can burn the leaves.
WATER: They don't' need a lot of water, allow the top 50% of soil to dry before you water, as they can store water in the thick leaves.
GROWTH HABIT: The String of Turtles is affected by few pests and diseases and is easy to propagate. Ideal indoors, in a hanging basket or terrarium.
SIZE: Will grow to 50cm long
