Peperomia // Obtusifolia

Commonly known as: peperomia green or baby rubber plant

Peperomias, as the name suggest are from the Pepper family. These plants have semi-succulent properties, which means that they are able to store moisture in their fleshy stems or leaves to fall back on when needed. These are ‘easy to care’ for plants with an extensive variety. They can also easily be propagated just from a leaf cutting. 

Light
They prefer bright light but not direct sun. They can also do well under florescent lights. The darker leaf peperomia like the obtusifolia can handle lower light conditions.

Water
Over-watering is the main cause of serious problems with Peperomia. Avoid the leaves when watering these plants.

Care level
These plants can handle less care

Pet-friendly
Safe for cats and dogs

Other peperomia varieties: Frost, green/obtusifolia, nevada, pink-edge/clusiifolia, ripple/caperatta
