Peperomia tetragona - Parallel Peperomia
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!

Well, my plants had to travel cross country, but arrived in a timely manner. And eventhough each plant was packaged well there was still soil spillage because the soil had had enough time to dry out almost completely. But with all that, when I unwrapped my new babies, I was very satisfied. Plant was full and healthy. I did lose a couple of leaves, but I expected that. Plants sent through the mail get tossed and jostled around and see a really hard time. I had to water immediately and thoroughly, but it perked up by the next morning. I'm gonna try to propagate the leaves that fell off because they were firm and healthy looking eventhough separated from the rest of the plant. I think that Pistil's did a great job, and I will definitely be ordering from them again!!!
