INDOOR PLANT - Peperomia Frosty in a 13cm Pot
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.
Peperomia 'Frosty' or 'Frost' or 'Silver Frost' has large, heart-shaped silver iridescent leaves that will quickly fill out your decorative pot and slightly rise into a higher mound.
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. This 13cm Peperomia Frosty would be super healthy and happy re-potted into a 17cm Mr Kitly Self-Watering Pot. If a ceramic pot is more your vibe let us recommend a small sized Fergus planter - these planters don't have drainage holes so a fuss free option is to simply place the Frosty, growers pot and all, inside this planter. This adorable Frosty has been photographed in a small sized Fergus Planter in 'Sky'.
** Please note all of our plants are hand selected for their quality and health. The Peperomia you receive may not be the exact one pictured but it will be of equal quality - we promise!
