Many of Peperomia plants are perennial epiphytes growing on rotten logs and they have thick stems and fleshy leaves, some with leaf windows.

Plant SpecificationsThe palmate pattern of leaf veins is marked out in some species as furrows in the leaves or as colored lines. Most Peperomias have tiny flowers which are packed into a characteristic greenish or brown conical spike (spadix) like an inverted catkin.

As a houseplant, it typically grows on thick erect stems. Flowers are interesting but not particularly showy.

    Peperomia Obtusifolia Care

    Most Peperomia species can be relatively easily propagated from leaf cuttings, similar to the way African violets are propagated. Remove large leaves with their stalks (petioles) and bury in seedling starting soil. Use of a rooting hormone can increase odds of success. Place the cutting in a warm, bright place until new growth emerges.
