Peperomia tetragona - Parallel Peperomia

$ 6.00

Peperomia tetragona is one of our favorites in the genus. Formerly called Peperomia puteolata, 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 tetragona is semi-succulent and can dry moderately between waterings. Pet friendly!


You'll get a healthy Peperomia tetragona that meets our rigorous quality standards in your choice of a 3" or 4" nursery pot – Planters sold separately. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!
