String of Turtles

String of Turtles is a popular semi-succulent plant for hanging baskets, terrariums or indoors. Also known as Jade Necklace, this plant looks best in situations where it can trail i.e. tall pots or hanging baskets.

An easy plant to grow, String of Turtles can be adapted to a range of growing conditions. However, we find it does best in bright filtered light with not too much water. The thin, fragile stems rot easily if the plant is kept soggy all the time.

String of Turtles suffers few pest and disease issues. Sometimes the leaves go pale and loose their patterning. There’s anecdotal evidence that applying fertilizer more regularly helps keep the colour and pattern.
