INDOOR PLANT - Peperomia Angulata Rocco Verde in 9cm Pots
Peperomia's...all 1000 plus species are super charming plants that make excellent indoor houseplants due to their hardiness and versatility. These tropical plants are native to Mexico, South America, and the West Indies. With so many varieties of Peperomia it's hard to know what belongs to what family but usually they all have thick fleshy leaves and clusters of stemmed like conical flowers that are present several times a year.
At Arizona Living we try to always have a few species of Peperomia available to buy as they are such a great plant to recommend for a novice plant parent, perfect for gifts and great for that lonely spot on a bench or bookshelf that you are wanting to fill.
The Peperomia Angulata Rocco Verde, or Radiator Plant, is a compact low growing peperomia that features green glossy heart shaped leaves with yellow veining throughout. It will quickly fill out the size of your pot then trail outwards and downwards.
Prefers well lit areas for growth and to maintain their glossy foliage. Bright light is required for flowering.
Allow the top of the soil to dry out before re-watering. As a guide this might be a full wetting of all the soil every week during the growing season and much less during winter.
WE RECOMMEND PLANTING IN...
When choosing a pot for this Peperomia increase your pot size by 3-7cm to allow extra room for the plant to grow and to avoid frequent re-potting. For this 9cm Peperomia a 12 - 16cm pot is an ideal size. An Oblique Ceramic Pot with Saucer would be a lovely choice for this plant.
