Plant Bio

Peperomia obtusifolia 'Variegata' (Baby Rubber Plant) highlights its surroundings with the creamy white edges and center green variation. Keep this one trimmed to create bushiness throughout. It enjoys drier topsoil conditions between waterings and higher humidity. To keep its leaves part creamy and lush, set it next to a brightly filtered eastern, southern or western window.

Fun Facts

Peperomia's can hold water in the stems and leaves, which helps it survive during a drought or when you accidentally neglect it. Their natural habitat is to grow on other trees as an epiphyte (growing on vertical surfaces or another plant) and absorbs its moisture needs from the humid air.
