A display of mottled, irregular variegation makes this Semi-succulent the centre of attention amongst its brothers and sisters. Shades of sage and emeralds blend with Golden yellows, splashing across its thick, waxy leaves which circulate on upright rigid stems dappled in pink flecks.
This Compact, bushy plant stores water in its foliage and is tolerant of shaded locations, making it ideal for the office and other homes away from home.
Big Bold and... Uneven? Obtusifolia can grow quite tall and uneven. Fill in the blanks by pinching out the tips of the plant in early spring, causing it to bush-out.
Fertiliser or Infestation! If you notice leaves curling, check for pests. If no pests are present the likely cause is lack of fertiliser.
Divide and Conquer! Peperomia are one of the easier plants to propagate. Taking cuttings in the spring and putting them into a glass of water or wet compost will promote new root growth and eventually new plants.
