Description

The Peperomia Frost may send shivers down your spine if you glare at it too long! It's a less common variety of the Peperomia (pep-er-ROH-mee-uh) family available on the market today. It's recognized by its silvery iridescent foliage and mounding growth pattern. It prefers warmer temps and bright, indirect light to thrive. It is similar to a succulent in that it stores water in its leaves and can tolerate drying out a bit between waterings.
