An amazing and simply gorgeous Peperomia. Ruby Glow Radiator Plant has stems and leaves with a lovely glowing claret colour. The upper, inner part of the leaf remains a clear, glossy green, that helps with photosynthesis. Intriguing pale white-green flower spikes develop on red stems like small pipe cleaners.

Radiator Plants are very much on trend, they are easy to look after and look great displayed on desks or small tables.

Please note: the stems and leaves on this plant are very fragile and despite our best efforts, some may be lost during transit.
