2.5" Peperomia graveolens

Sku: 0850204

This plant is a forest dweller at high altitudes and does best with a culture that gives excellent airflow and a soil that allows the water to run quickly away from the roots and not promote sodden conditions. These plants have evolved to have leaves with red undersides as the light from the forest floors is green in spectrum, and green leaves merely reflect green light. However, red leaves can absorb and utilize some of the light to enable photosynthesis. Very porous soil with excellent drainage. Filtered to bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when dry, but allow to dry somewhat between watering. Protect from frost.
