Peperomia Obtipan Bicolor is an attractive, variegated Radiator Plant, a baby rubber plant with pastel pink margins adding to its charm.
It is a bushy, upright plant with thick stems and fleshy, glossy, cupped leaves. It has a compact, spreading nature and is particularly suited to growing in low or fluorescent light, making it perfect for offices and shady spots. It forms narrow spikes of off-white flowers on red-brown stems.
Radiator Plants are easy to look after and look great displayed on desks or small tables.
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.
How much is too much? Peperomia plants are sensitive to overwatering. Too wet and it will rot, too dry and it will die. When the soil has nearly dried out, give it a little drink.
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.
