Peperomia are a favorite here at Crimson for their ease of care and vast range in foliage. The Peperomia Obtusifolia, often referred to as the “Baby Rubber Plant”, is a hardy staple distinguished by its blunt, waxy leaves and upright stems. Native to forests in Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean, Peperomia are used to the dappled light of the understory, making them an ideal plant for the indoor garden.
Light: Peperomia fare best in bright, indirect light. It can also do well with morning or evening sun, but will not tolerate full, direct sun. Fluorescent lighting is an excellent choice when growing these easy-care indoor plants.
Water: While the Peperomia like to be on the dryer side, their fragile roots do not tolerate drought conditions. Allow the soil to dry out at least halfway down in the pot between thorough waterings. Avoid wetting their leaves or stems.
Humidity: Moderate to low humidity is best.
Not poisonous to pets if ingested.
