4" Peperomia Ripple Red
Also known as emerald ripple pepper, ripple peperomia (Peperomia caperata) is a low-growing plant native to the Brazilian rain forest that grows to a mature height of 6 to 8 inches, with a similar spread. The plant gets its common name from its wrinkled green leaves, which are so dark they almost appear purple. Ripple peperomia is a fairly low-maintenance plant that is often grown as a houseplant due to its tough nature and tolerance of fluorescent lights.
Medium to bright light. Tolerates low light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
Water once or twice a week, depending on season. Spring to summer, water as soon as potting mix begins to dry out. Fall to winter, allow mix to dry out almost completely before watering thoroughly.
Average home temperature of 65°F-75°F. If you’re comfortable, the Ripple Peperomia is comfortable.
Not known to be toxic. Best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets.
