Peperomia verticillata 'Double Duty'
Peperomia verticillata 'Double Duty' is a vining plant from Central and South America grown for its beautiful, succulent leaves. Most Peperomia are understory plants in tropical rainforests, and because their leaves store extra water, the plant prefers to dry out more than thin-leaved tropicals.
Sometimes grown as Peperomia 'Red Log', it has deep green leaves with subtle white veining and bright red undersides. Pinching the growth tips to keep the plant short and compact, or let become top heavy and start to trail and cascade from its pot.
• Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Peperomia verticillata 'Double Duty' is semi-succulent and can dry moderately between waterings. Pet friendly!

Was very impressed with how my plants arrived. The packaging was impeccable. After ordering from many online plant stores, Pistils Team is on top with packaging. Normally I find some acceptable damage. But not even one was damaged through the long trip across the coast. Very happy with my new additions!
Unfortunately, the plant I received today was broken and wilted. Not to mention bone dry, so the majority of the soil was everywhere but in the pot. Guess I’ll take this as a loss.
