Where The Turtle Peperomia is Happiest
Provide bright, indirect light, avoiding direct sun exposure.
Allow the soil to partially dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly and ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot.
Keep it away from drafts and maintain a stable temperature.
Feeding The Turtle Peperomia
- Fertilize with a balanced, water-soluble plant food every four to six weeks during the growing season (Spring through Summer).
Prune to maintain its trailing shape and encourage bushier growth.
Repot only when the plant becomes root-bound, typically every few years.
