Peperomia caperata 'Rosso'

Emerald Ripple Radiator Plant

Peperomia caperata Rosso


This perfect houseplant shows off glossy green deeply grooved leaves with dark veins and contrasting undersides of rich red. Grows about 8 inch high and wide in bright, indirect light. The reddish flower spikes poke up through the leaves with tiny whitish flowers. The parent species is native to Central and South America. (D, F, H, T) Piperaceae


Peperomia obtusifolia 'Golden Gate'

Golden Gate Baby Rubber Plant

Peperomia obtusifolia Golden Gate


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. Piperaceae


Peperomia prostrata

String of Turtles, Creeping Peperomia

Peperomia prostrata


This is a favorite miniature plant that creeps along the ground creating a dense mat. It can even climb up a small support. The tiny ½ inch round succulent leaves have a mottled pattern of lighter green veins. Great for a hanging basket, terrarium, vivarium, small dish garden, or shingling up a damp moss pole. It prefers moderate bright shade, moisture, and humid conditions. It won't tolerate waterlogged soils, so water lightly when the soil is dry and give it gritty, well-drained soil. Roots as it spreads and is fairly fast growing with a height of about 1 inch. Native to Brazilian rainforests where it is often found growing on trees and rocks as an epiphyte. USDA zones 9 - 11. Sometimes confused with Peperomia rotundifolia, which is a different species with all green leaves. During shipping a few leaves may drop off since they break easily but will quickly regrow. So, be extra careful unpacking. (B, M, T, F, H) Piperaceae


Peperomia rubella

Peperomia rubella


Miniature trailer with tiny red backed leaves. Suitable for hanging basket, terrarium, vivarium or dish garden. Easy and colorful. Does best in a bright position protected from direct sunlight. Native to Jamaica. Piperaceae


Peperomia scandens 'Variegata'

Variegated Cupid Peperomia

Peperomia scandens Variegata


This "False Philodendron" is a popular house plant with heart-shaped waxy variegated leaves of green and creamy white. Easy to grow and makes a great hanging basket house plant. Give bright light, but not direct sunlight, and allow to dry out somewhat between waterings. (B, F) Piperaceae
