About the plant:
Peperomia, or pepper plant, is a plant from the pepper family (yes, this includes black pepper). Peperomia prostrata is a small plant with leaves whose pattern resembles a tortoise shell. That's why it bears the nickname string of turtles. These peppercorns also have the beautiful Czech name Želvičky. If you give the plant enough light, it will grow really fast.
They are most naturally found in South and Central America, but a few species can also be found in Africa. More than 1,500 species have been recorded in tropical and subtropical regions. It is an epiphyte that is often found growing on rotting wood.
Although their shape, size and colors differ, in most cases it is an undemanding shrub-like plant. Its narrow and thin flower grows in the form of a spike. It is yellow in color and looks like a wax candle. The leaves are fleshy and smooth, and can be heart- or spear-shaped.
