Turtle Vine Plant


Turtle Vine  is a neat little plant spreading sideways to make a carpet of green slightly succulent leaves. Grow in a shallow pot or hanging basket it will eventually trail in a shady position. It is also a good plant for terrariums. In many places, it is known as Turtle Vine as it is a brilliant edible plant for vegetarian and omnivorous animals. If placed in an enclosure, it can be left in pot to be snacked upon, and then removed for a few more days to re-grow.

The Turtle Vine is native to America from the southeast of the United States (Texas, Florida) via the West Indies (Guadeloupe and Martinique) to Argentina and grows in shady, rocky or gravelly spots in subtropical to tropical forests. It is naturalized in Hong Kong and grows on rooftops. In Western Australia, it is an invasive species due to its rapid growth, its tolerance to various environments and the ground cover effect which makes it spread very quickly, suffocating local plants or preventing them from germinating.\

  • Always check the soil moisture and keep the plant hydrated all time. Do not over water it.

More Inforamtion

Turtle Vine is occasionally used as a pot and traffic light plant as an ornamental plant and it is easily propagated by cuttings. It is also marketed as a houseplant for its drooping habit and the scent of its white flowers. Strong light makes the foliage blush, the plant can stand direct sunlight if there is much humidity. The optimum growth condition is between 18–22 °C during the day and at least 12°C at night.

The flowering shoots of Callisia Repens are ascending. The fleshy, delicate leaves grow smaller towards the tip of the shoot. The leaf blade is oval to lanceolate, one to 3.5 centimeters long and 0.6 to one centimeter wide. In the distal leaves, the blades are narrower than the open, spread leaf sheaths. It grows quickly, multiplies easily by long, creeping shoots that root in each node, as soon as it is on the ground.

Growing Requirements


The plant does well in bright indirect sunlight. Save the plant from the scorching afternoon sun. You can hang it near a south or west-facing balcony or window for a showy display.

A Tip: 2-3 hours of exposure to the morning sun will be wonderful for its growth.


It needs slightly moist soil for better growth. As a thumb rule, water only when the top 2-inches feel dry to touch. Avoid overwatering the plant and cut down the rate during winters.


Go for a regular soil mix, especially one that is designed for cacti and succulents. You can also DIY the same with 3 parts of potting soil, 2 parts of sand, and 1 part of perlite.


The plant prefers a slightly warm temperature. Move the turtle vine plant indoors during winters, if you live in a cold climate, to save it from dying.


Feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer once every 4-5 weeks during its growing season. For dosage, refer to the label on the brand.


Prune the tip of the foliage to encourage bushier growth and to maintain its size and shape.

Pest and Diseases

The plant is susceptible to root rot, so always use a pot with drainage holes. If you see any pests on the foliage, spray it with a strong jet of water to knock them out.
