Description

This one seems to be a fan-favorite here in the shop and we can see why! Being semi-succulent in nature makes this plant super forgiving to busy or first-time plant parents, without sacrificing any of the beauty! Button shaped leaves with emerald tops and ruby undersides grow along fast growing vines that occasionally sprout those familiar peperomia ‘rat tail’ flowers! Water when completely dry and provide plenty of sun for best results. We particularly love this one hanging in a sunny, south-facing window, and bonus- it’s pet safe!
