Info: One of my favourite plants, with their super cute gorgeous turtle print leaves. They tend to stay on the small side so making them a great desktop plant. The leaves fall off easily when bumped so they need a spot where they are out of harms way. They have a shallow root system so can go years without being repotted.

Light: They prefer medium indirect light but will want this light hitting the top of the soil as new growth often starts here. The top shelf for a trailing turtle may not be the best spot.

Water: Great news! They prefer to be watered sparingly. Too much water and the leaves will turn to mush. Only water when the soil is dry. Pop it in a vessel and fill with water til it’s half way up the pot. Leave for 10 mins, then remove the pot and allow it to drain. They must have make sure when you have watered they are not sitting in the excess water! This will avoid root rot!

Toxicity: Pet friendly!

Remember that all of our plants are unique, the plant you receive might not be identical to the one in the picture but we think you will love its individuality.
