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!

I am impressed as usual by the plant quality and excellent customer service at Pistils. My first plant arrived in the mail with cold damage, but Pistils customer service responded so quickly to my claim and sent a new plant right away. The new one arrived in great condition, and it's gorgeous.
Arrived beautifully protected and unharmed. This is the third plant purchase from Pistils. The Peperomia is healthy and larger than I expected. I am very happy with my purchase.
Exceptional as always
