Peperomia elongata is a compact, easy-to-care-for variety of Peperomia! Its exotic long, waxy, pointed green leaves are a unique addition to any collection. It will maintain its compact, bushy growth and stay close to the soil. It prefers bright, indirect light but will tolerate lower lighting conditions, and it will do best if you allow the soil to dry out between watering.
