Description for Peperomia Obtusifolia Variegated

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.

Flowers are interesting but not particularly showy. Many variegated cultivars with foliage that is mottled with cream, gray or gold.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Peperomia, Baby rubber plant, Pepper Face Greenish-white Spring and Autumn 12 inches 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 Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
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 mix. Keep 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). 65 degrees F to 75 degrees F. Use any organic fertilizer.
