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.

  • Brown spots on leaves: Burning leaves from direct sunlight, watering with lime water.
  • The plant does not grow: We have to transplant the plant, soil without nutrients, not enough light.
