Identifiable from its raindrop shaped apex, the Peperomia polybotrya is a small semi-succulent full of opaque, cupped leaves alternating up its robust upright stem.
Growing no bigger than 30cm, the filling arrangement of this glossy green foliage makes the Raindrop a perfect shelf sitter, giving those secondary spaces a new lease of life.
How much is too much? This semi-succulent is sensitive to overwatering. Too wet and it will rot, too dry and it will wilt. When the soil has nearly dried out, give it a little drink.
Bumps and blisters! Bumpy leaves or a crystal-like substance on the underside of the leaf is known as edema, caused by giving too much water. Research and remedy accordingly.
Light them up! These plants thrive under both florescent and natural light, making them ideal in darker, shaded spaces.
