Donatello, a String of Turtles, or Peperomia Prostrata, is a miniature member of the Peperomia family with variegated leaves resembling the shell of a turtle!


Native to South America, Donatello is happy either trailing down the side of a pot or creeping along surfaces, eventually creating a mat-like structure. He won't grow too big, so he's great for a desk, but make sure you're careful because he's delicate!

Donatello, String of Turtles - Large

  • Donatello prefers bright indirect light, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.

    If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:

    • Minimal shadow = lower light
    • Half shadow = indirect light
    • Full shadow = direct sun

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
