NEW! - This is a striking variegated houseplant with uniquely patterned leaves of creamy yellow and pale green with borders of dark green. Succulent leaves are thick and waxy. Sometimes listed as Peperomia magnifolia 'Golden Gate'. Grow it in bright light for best coloring, but not direct sunlight. This easy plant should be grown in potting soil that drains well and only watered when the top of the soil is dry. It's very sensitive to water-logged soil and does best if slightly pot-bound. Feed monthly with a balanced liquid fertilizer. It produces greenish-white flower spikes, which can be pruned off to make a tidier plant. The parent species to this cultivar is native to southern Florida and the Caribbean. USDA zones 10b - 11.
