About Callisia Turtle
The Callisia Turtle is a striking, compact little plant with very small scale like grey-green leaves that have a surprising purple underside. This plant is therefore also known as the ‘turtle plant’. This plant is originally from South Africa.

Our advise

It is best to water this plant from the bottom up, otherwise it may start to rot. It is best if you place this plant in a shady or well light spot, but not in full sunlight. During the summer, this plant can also survive quite well outside in a shady spot.
