Quantity in Basket:
New! This unique peperomia has oval, thick succulent green leaves with subtle light green stripes and stems of pinkish-orange. The small leaves grow in clusters of three or four as the stems grow. Flowers are insignificant. With its compact size, it grows about 2" high and stems about 12" long. This is an easy houseplant, and with its trailing habit, it makes an attractive hanging basket. It's also a fine choice for a terrarium or for hanging as an epiphyte. It's best to keep the shallow roots semi-moist, but it should not be over-watered. Give it bright indirect light, but no direct sunlight. This species looks very much like the cultivar Peperomia 'Hope', which some people regard as a questionable hybrid.
