Enhance your plant collection with the delightful Primula Pretty Turtles, adding a touch of unique personality to your interior space. Their luxuriant green foliage, embellished with silver accents, promises to captivate attention as the centrepiece of any tabletop or houseplant arrangement.

Originating from the eastern regions of South Africa and parts of Madagascar, these charming plants thrive in warm, humid environments with gentle, indirect light.

Maintaining a slightly moist environment, akin to a damp facecloth ensures their contentment, making them suitable for various indoor spaces, particularly bright kitchens or bathrooms. With proper care, they graciously bloom into exquisite lilac blossoms during the summer months.

Perfect for beginners and experienced plant parents alike, this native gem flourishes in compact spaces, particularly when showcased in a modest container that accentuates its foliage. Embrace this subtle elegance as a striking addition to your interior decor today; its presence is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Please note: Strepotocarpus are considered safe to have around pets and sticky-fingered children.

Follow these care tips to keep your pretty turtle happy and healthy.

Light: Bright, filtered light is best with some direct morning sunlight.
Watering: Keep the plant just moist to the touch, allowing it to reach 50% dryness before watering again.
Humidity: This plant loves humidity but will tolerate some dry air. If you notice crisping, place a pebble tray or relocate to a bright bathroom or kitchen. Do not allow water to sit on the leaves for long periods of time.
Fertiliser: Feed every 2 weeks with a balanced fertiliser; use organic for best results.
