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.
• Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feel dry
• Considerations: Peperomia puteolata is semi-succulent and can dry moderately between waterings. Pet friendly!

This is my second online order from Pistils and I couldn’t be happier! The plant was packaged well, and looked great (and is doing well!). They’ve been very quick to respond to concerns I had about my first order (a Chinese money plant that is thriving!) and I will definitely be ordering from them again!
It’s perfect size & perfectly healthy. Thank you so much!!
I ordered the peperomia puteolata along with another plant from Pistils nursery. They both arrived in great condition. Per instructions, I decided not to repot them right away. It’s been a few days and they are both doing well. I would definitely order from Pistils again! I am happy with the plants, ease of ordering, timely delivery and condition and price of the plants.
