Description

The Peperomia 'Rosso' is a compact, easy to care for variety of Peperomia recognized by its waxy, pointed green leaves and red undersides. 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. When it’s happy it will even start to sprout long, thin flowers know as ‘rat tails’ which you can see in our photos.
