Peperomia Puteolata - Parallel Peperomia
Peperomia puteolata is one of our favorites in the genus. Its almond-shaped leaves are variegated with alternating stripes of dark and light green, much like the rind of a watermelon. The leaves emerge in whirls of threes and fours, and stand in striking contrast to the upright, reddish stems. Ultimately growing 16" or longer, Parallel Peperomia is great for tabletop or hanging planters. It's easy to propagate from stem tip cuttings, and periodic pruning encourages a bushy habit.
Peperomia puteolata is a great houseplant for beginners as it's quite forgiving. Place in bright indirect light, and water when the soil is nearly dry, taking care not to over-water. Includes detailed care instructions.
Ships in a 4" plastic nursery pot. Overall height and width of plants is 4-6". Each pot has multiple stems with several leaf clusters; leaves measure about 1".
Hand Thrown Ceramic Planter sold separately.
