Peperomia obtusifolia - Baby Rubber Tree
Peperomia obtusifolia is a compact semi-succulent tropical plant with shiny, deep green round leaves. Nicknamed the Baby Rubber Tree due to its resemblance to Ficus elastica, this Peperomia stays quite small, capping out at around 12" tall. As it grow, it will continue to spread out and form a beautiful, dense shrub. This easy-growing plant is native to central America, the Caribbean, and parts of Florida.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 2" of soil feels dry, and take care not to overwater
• Considerations: Peperomia obtusifolia is semi-succulent and can dry moderately between waterings. Pet friendly!

The baby rubber tree I received from Pistils looks really healthy and was well packed for shipping. This is the fifth plant I have purchased from Pistils this year, they have all done well since arrival at my home.
Just received my peperomia plant today and was surprised to see how much care they put into the packaging to make sure the plant could be delivered safely. Love the plant, is in perfect condition, will definitely buy from here again! Thank you pistil's nursery!
