Baby Succulent Turtle GA-4005
Our 14″ baby turtle is part of the topiary critter collection. Turtles are planted with a variety of hardy succulents on a moss filled frame. All the plants are well rooted and will continue to fill out the shell. We use only hardy perennial succulents, so your turtle will live for many years and are very easy to care for. Place your turtle in an area that will receive a least a half day to a full day of sun. Water when the moss becomes dry by totally submerging your turtle in a tub of water to soak for 10 minutes. Water about twice a week in the summer and once a week in the winter.
In cold areas of the country turtles can be brought indoors for the winter and placed in a sunny location. Or they can also be left outside, in the garden and covered with a thick layer of leaves. It may be helpful to place a branch on the leaves to hold them in place for the winter. Remove the leaves in early spring.
