Another round of plant hunting

It’s tough to live next to a huge nursery without having a weekly “look” at their awesome plants. This time I brought two hanging plants home with me to fill up my indoor window shelves. I found this Crassula rupestris subsp. marnieriana (Jade Necklace) in perfect condition. I’ve seen this plant many times in different grocery stores and garden centers, but they were all seriously etiolated. This one is nice and compact.

The second one is a tiny Peperomia Prostrata (String of Turtles). The small, round leaves look like turtle shells. It was sold in a 5 cm pot, so I’ll probably have to upgrade it when it starts to look sad.
