Peperomia obtusifolia “Variegata”, also known as Baby Rubber Plant, is the variegated version of this compact plant native to rainforests in South America. Peperomia prefer medium to bright filtered light. This plant prefers to be kept on the drier side as it stores water inside its thick leaves and should only be watered when the top two inches of soil feels completely dry to the touch. The easy maintenance makes this a wonderful choice for beginner plant parents looking for a compact sized houseplant.
The variegated Peperomia enjoys bright indirect light.
Water about once a week allowing the soil to drain and dry before its next watering.
Peperomias prefer temperatures of 65⁰ to 85⁰.
Apply a balanced houseplant fertilizer at half strength once every 1 - 3 months.
Our Classic Collection features a tapered terracotta design in two sizes and three styles highlighted by its beautiful color and lush green foliage.The Classic is made of terracotta: a porous, breathable material that allows for water and air circulation in the soil and creates a healthy environment for the plant. The word terracotta can trace its roots back to the Latin words “terra cocta” meaning baked earth. This clay-based pot minimizes over-watering and helps plants maintain healthy roots by absorbing excess moisture from the soil. In addition to its health benefits terracotta is known for developing a unique patina that gives it a beautiful and timeless look as it ages. Inspired by the minimalist lifestyle, this planter is simplistic, tasteful, and authentic.
