Unlike other Peperomia, Peperomia 'Ecuador' sports large, ruffled leaves that can occasionally reach the size of your hand. As the leaves mature, the edges slightly curl, giving the foliage a cupped-leaf appearance. Dappling along the margins of the leaves creates even more interest, breaking up the otherwise solid green leaf. 

To assure your Peperomia 'Ecuador' grows its very best, provide it with a bright spot away from direct sunlight and water every week or so. The roots enjoy being slightly damp, but never soggy.
