Peperomia Obtusifolia is native to Central and South America. It can be grown in warm climates as well as an outdoor plant. This plant lives on the forest floor and spreads out as it grows. If you would like to share your Obtusifolia they are incredibly easy to propagate in water. A neat aspect of peperomia is that they can be grown from simply a leaf. In the wild, this plant would drop some leaves as animals passed by, and from there, start new plants.
Light: Low to Medium indirect light. Your plant will begin to lean if it is not receiving enough light.
Water: Let your soil dry out most of the way between waterings. You can tell if your Obtusifolia needs water because the leaves will become very flimsy, rather than hard and succulent.
Soil: Nutrient dense, peat and perlite heavy.
Notes: Take a leaf off, and leave the end in a cup of water or damp moss. You have another plant now!
What to expect
You will receive a plant similar in size to the one you choose. I will not send you a smaller plant than the one you select. There will be variation in how each plant looks but I guarantee you will receive a quality plant with a well developed root system.
I recommend a heating pack when your shipment may encounter temperatures below 40 degrees. Please add one heating pack to your order if you feel this may occur.
Bare Root Packing Available
Your plant will be sent in a nursery pot unless otherwise specified. My favorite way of sending plants is with the root systems wrapped in moss and plastic without a nursery pot. This option is for people who know which potting medium they would like to put it in when it arrives. Please specify during checkout if you would like your plant shipped bare root.
