Description

Easy enough for the beginner grower but with a striking appearance that could serve as a ‘dupe’ for the Jewel Orchid, the ‘Parallel Peperomia’ is our newest addition to our Peperomia family! Like most Peperomia this plant does great in a terrarium, but will do just fine adapting to normal room humidity. Since Peperomia varieties tend to be semi-succulent in nature be extra careful not to overwater, but definitely give it more attention than a cactus. We know- this can be a little confusing, but spend time with your plant and you’ll start to recognize how it wilts when it needs a drink. Peperomia are a forgiving family, and they’ll fit right in to your current collection!
