Peperomia obtusifolia is a small succulent like variety of peperomia that is ideal for small and compact places. Its thick upright stems with its oversized and glossy dark green leaves gives it an overall cute demeanour that is sure to catch your eye. As it is pet-friendly, any corner with ample light will be a perfect spot for it.
Peperomia is a perennial and is related to pepper plants. The name in itself means ‘the plant related to the pepper’. Most Peperomia species originate from a large South American family.
Peperomia plants are easy to grow indoors. They are coined ‘radiator plants’ due to their easy-going nature. They thrive in warm conditions but do not need high humidity.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
