The Peperomia (pep-er-ROH-mee-uh) Rotundifolia (Rote-tun-DEE-folia) is an eye-catching and very interesting trailing plant that was first discovered in the tropics of Central and South America.
Up to 30cm in drop and comes in a 17cm hanging pot with detachable hooks so can be hung or placed on a shelf.
Very good at purifying the air, so ideal for offices and bedrooms.
It is actually the creation of mixing the Peperomia Quadrifolia and Peperomia Deppeana together.
Despite not being an actual succulent, these plants also store water in their leaves.
Care and tips:
🌞 = Prefers indirect sunlight
💧= Allow soil to completely dry between waters, then water and be sure to drain any excess water left as this will create a root rot problem.
🐶🐱👶= Not known to be toxic, but as we always recommend, should be kept away from tiny humans and furry creatures just in case. Safe for tortoises in moderation along with a varied diet.
Easy to propagate; just take a cutting with at least one leaf attached and either place in soil or water and wait for roots to appear.
Things to look out for:
Overwatering: Stems and leaves can have a mushy appearance and turn yellow/brown in colour.
Underwatering: If underwatered, the leaves and stems can look empty and shrivelled/dried up.
Other common names for this plant:
- Peperomia Hope
- Trailing Jade
- Dollar Plant
