Description

This classy Peperomia has a spreading, scrambling growth habit. He looks great in hanging baskets on the balcony, or in a pot where his fleshy stems can show off the smooth emerald green leaves with a flashy cream border to their full advantage. The contrasting edge means his leaves pop out of the background making him a real favourite with interior designers.

If you take care of him small white flowers will pop through the foliage. So he’s high maintenance you ask? Not at all. He’s still a Peperomia which means he’s one of the easiest houseplants and likes neglect.

Your job is to put him in free-draining good quality potting mix, find a bright spot in filtered sunlight and only water when the soil has dried out. If you’re planning to put him outside choose an understory spot and make sure the soil isn’t heavy.

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: This favourite of interior designers offers incredible colour contrast indoors or out and divinely low-care requirements. Woot woot!

    I grow to:  I’ll reach 50cms by 50cms

    Where to place me:  I like bright filtered light or full shade outdoors

    How far to space me:  Give me 30cms of elbow room

    Soil Conditions: I need well-drained soil on the drier side.

  • Size
  • I come to you in an 85mm nursery grow pot 20-40cm tall

  • Growing
  • How to water me
    I like to have a drink once or twice a week allowing my soil to dry out between drinks please. 

    Soil PH
    I will do my best with a soil PH level between 5.5-6.5, you can read more about the importance of PH levels here 

    Tips and tricks
    Pinch his tips to encourage or control growth, and his small root system means you never have to re-pot him. Keep in a bright environment to maintain vivid colouring, but he prefers part shade to bright, full shade outdoors. If growing indoors, he prefers bright, filtered sunlight and only occasional watering (remember when the soil is dried out - hey, we told he was low-care!).

  • Delivery
  • Once your new plant babes are dispatched you will receive tracking information so you can keep an eye on its journey. Once in transit, packages usually take 2-10 business days to arrive. If you need it delivered ASAP we recommend upgrading to express post to get it there faster. 

    So your babes arrive in the best condition we hold off shipping if there is an upcoming public holiday or crazy weather event. We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants, and fast, free delivery to your door.
