Description for Peperomia Obtusifolia (Small)

Plant height: 1.2 - 1.9 inches
Plant spread: 3 - 5 inches

The palmate pattern of leaf veins is marked out in some species as furrows in the leaves or as colored lines. Most Peperomias have tiny flowers which are packed into a characteristic greenish or brown conical spike (spadix) like an inverted catkin.

As a houseplant, it typically grows on thick erect stems. Flowers are interesting but not particularly showy.

Common name(s): Peperomia, Baby rubber plant, Pepper Face
Flower colours: Greenish-white
Bloom time: Spring and Autumn
Max reachable height: 12 inches
Difficulty to grow: Easy to grow

Planting and care

Most Peperomia species can be relatively easily propagated from leaf cuttings, similar to the way African violets are propagated. Remove large leaves with their stalks (petioles) and bury in seedling starting soil. Use of a rooting hormone can increase odds of success. Place the cutting in a warm, bright place until new growth emerges.

Sunlight: Peperomia do well in light to moderate light, such as found in a northern or east-facing window. They can be easily grown under fluorescent lights.
Soil: A loose, well-drained, very rich potting mix.
Water: Keep the soil moist during the growing season and provide relatively high humidity through spraying or by setting the pot in a gravel tray.
Temperature: Average. Peperomia do well in the relatively cool environment of most homes (although they dislike the dry). 65 degrees F to 75 degrees F.
Fertilizer: Use any organic fertilizer.

Caring for Peperomia Obtusifolia

  • If your peperomia plants are wilting, in spite of regular watering, the plant is likely not getting enough oxygen to the roots.
  • Avoid direct afternoon sun.
  • Set the plant in a humidified room or on wet pebbles.
  • Keep the peperomia leaves dry and provide good air circulation to prevent diseases.
