Introducing the Labisia 'Turtle Back', a captivating and unique houseplant that brings a lush, tropical charm to any indoor space. This remarkable plant features beautifully textured leaves that resemble the pattern of a turtle's shell, with deep, rounded indentations and a rich, glossy green color that catches the light with every turn.

Native to the humid rainforests of Southeast Asia, the Labisia 'Turtle Back' thrives in environments that replicate the moist, shaded undergrowth of its natural habitat. Its low-growing and spreading nature makes it an excellent choice for terrariums, as a ground cover in indoor plant displays, or simply as an eye-catching tabletop centerpiece.

Caring for the Labisia 'Turtle Back' is an enjoyable and rewarding experience, as it is relatively low-maintenance compared to other tropical plants. It prefers low to medium indirect light, which makes it well-suited for spaces that don't receive a lot of natural sunlight. Direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the delicate leaves.

Watering should be consistent, aiming to keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy. The Labisia 'Turtle Back' does not tolerate drought well, so it's important to water it before the soil dries out completely. Using a well-draining soil mix will help prevent water from accumulating at the roots and causing rot.

Humidity is crucial for this tropical beauty. It thrives in high humidity environments, which can be achieved by misting the plant regularly, placing it in a humidity tray, or using a room humidifier. This will keep the leaves vibrant and healthy.

Fertilization isn't frequently required but providing a balanced, diluted fertilizer once every two months during the growing season can help promote fuller growth and maintain the plant's deep green color.

The Labisia 'Turtle Back' is more than just a plant; it's a striking addition that brings a bit of the jungle into your home. Its unique foliage and easy-care nature make it an ideal choice for both novice plant lovers and experienced enthusiasts alike. Whether placed in a bathroom, a shaded corner of your living room, or in a terrarium, this plant is sure to be a topic of conversation and a source of joy.

Grower's choice, but ask for photos of available stock if you would like to choose your plant before shipping.
