A delicate trailing succulent with small bright green button-like leaves with a darker green pattern that resembles the shell of a turtle. Spike-like flowers protrude from the stems throughout the year and can be cut off or left on.
As with all succulents, they prefer lots of bright light with a very well-draining cactus soil and a shallow pot and although have a shallow root system, prefer a drier soil before watering from the bottom or water 1/6th of the pot volume in water. Never let the pot stand in water. High and warm humidity gives larger leaves. Propagation is done best by placing a stem cutting in sphagnum moss or directly into the soil.
