A lovely variety, perfect for indoor containers and hanging baskets; this slow grower produces large oval dark green foliage with cream and rose colored edges; a low maintenance selection perfect for beginners

Features & Attributes

Peperomia clusiifolia's attractive succulent oval leaves remain dark green in colour with distinctive rose edges and tinges of creamy white throughout the year on a plant with a trailing habit of growth. It features unusual spikes of white flowers from mid spring to early summer.

This is an herbaceous evergreen houseplant with a trailing habit of growth, eventually spilling over the edges of hanging baskets and containers. This plant should not require much pruning, except when necessary to keep it looking its best.

Planting & Growing

When grown indoors, Peperomia clusiifolia can be expected to grow to be about 8 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 5 years. This houseplant performs well in both bright or indirect sunlight and strong artificial light, and can therefore be situated in almost any well-lit room or location. It does best in average to evenly moist soil, but will not tolerate standing water. The surface of the soil shouldn't be allowed to dry out completely, and so you should expect to water this plant once and possibly even twice each week. Be aware that your particular watering schedule may vary depending on its location in the room, the pot size, plant size and other conditions; if in doubt, ask one of our experts in the store for advice. It is not particular as to soil type or pH; an average potting soil should work just fine.

There are many factors that will affect the ultimate height, spread and overall performance of a plant when grown indoors; among them, the size of the pot it's growing in, the amount of light it receives, watering frequency, the pruning regimen and repotting schedule. Use the information described here as a guideline only; individual performance can and will vary. Please contact the store to speak with one of our experts if you are interested in further details concerning recommendations on pot size, watering, pruning, repotting, etc.
