Description for Peperomia Obtusifolia (Small)

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.

It typically grows on thick erect stems to 1 foot tall. Waxy, elliptic-obovate thick dark green leaves are 1-6 inches long. Small greenish-white flowers are borne on spikes up to 5 inches long. A few species have more attractive flowers such as the white, scented clusters of spikes produced by Peperomia fraseri from Ecuador.

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.

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. A loose, well-drained, very rich potting mixKeep the soil moist during the growing season and provide relatively high humidity through spraying or by setting the pot in a gravel tray.Average. Peperomia do well in the relatively cool environment of most homes (although they dislike the dry). Aim for 65 degrees F to 75 degrees F.Fertilize bi-weekly during the growing season with a diluted liquid fertilizer or use controlled-release fertilizer pellets at the beginning of the growing season.

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.
  • Peperomia plants can be pruned anywhere along the stem. New growth develops from the nodes just below the cut in the stem.
