Description

Another striking yet easy to care for variety of Peperomia, we have the Clusiifolia or ‘Tricolor’ as our newest addition! Combining the best of the ‘Red Edge’ and ‘Orbifolia Variegata’ varieties, the ‘Tricolor’ has beautiful cream and light green variegation towards the center of the leaves with bright red edges that become more intense the more light you provide. This plant can tolerate some shade but it’s won’t grow as fast or become and vibrant so we recommend a sunny window. And while it’s thick leaves resemble succulents, these are thirstier and require more water especillay when they’re growing
