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.

Horty Hints

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.

Fertiliser or infestation! If you notice leaves curling, check for pests. If no pests are present the likely cause is lack of fertiliser.
