Peperomia Obtusifolia Variegata
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 has an added advantage with multiple shades of dark green, olive green and lovely creamy white foliage. It forms narrow spikes of off-white flowers on red-brown stems.
Also known as Pepper Face or Blunt-Leafed Peperomia, Radiator Plants are very much on trend, they are easy to look after and look great displayed on desks or small tables.
It is a great choice if you are looking for a small houseplant that’s not too demanding. It will even grow under fluorescent light which makes it great for offices and apartment living. Use it standalone to decorate your tabletops or a window sill.
Part of the popular Peperomia house plant family, Peperomia Obtusifolia Variegata is well loved for its unique spiralling foliage and rather curious, abundant flower spikes.
Peperomia Obtusifolia Variegata will be happy in a variety of light conditions, including artificial fluorescent light. But be sure not to place her in direct sunlight, as this will burn the leaves. Water thoroughly and then let the soil dry out slightly in between.
Dos and Don’ts after receiving the plant
- Do not re-pot the plant immediately after receiving. We’ve taken care of that with better pot and rich soil.
- Keep the plant in indirect sunlight for 3 to 7 days.
- Always check the soil moisture and keep the plant hydrated all time. Do not over water it.
