Peperomia puteolata - Parallel Peperomia
Peperomia puteolata is one of our favorites in the genus. Its almond-shaped leaves are variegated with alternating stripes of dark and light green, much like the rind of a watermelon. The leaves emerge in whirls of threes and fours, and stand in striking contrast to the upright, reddish stems. Ultimately growing 16" or longer, Parallel Peperomia is great for tabletop or hanging planters. It's easy to propagate from stem tip cuttings, and periodic pruning encourages a bushy habit.
Peperomia puteolata is a great houseplant for beginners as it's quite forgiving. Place in bright indirect light, and water when the soil is nearly dry, taking care not to over-water. Includes detailed care instructions.
- 4" Pot has 3-4 stems, each with several leaf clusters; overall height and width 4-6"
- 3" Pot has 1-2 stems, each with several leaf clusters; overall height and width 2-5"

My plant arrived in perfect condition and it is lovely. I have placed it in a special spot where I can always gaze upon it when I'm resting or reading in the sun room. I love this peperomia.
I was a bit skeptical about how well the plant would travel to Atlanta, but I had nothing to be worried about. The plant looks great and was the perfect birthday gift. I will be ordering other plants soon for the holidays!
