Description

Newer to the market and on the rarer side of Peperomia, the ‘Equador’s’ country of origin is right there in the name to keep things easy! If you collect silver plants you’ll want to grab one of these while we have them- the highly textured leaves display dramatic silver stripes, and they can get up to 12” in diameter! Even if you have all of the other Peperomia we have in our shop, this one is sure to stand out in your collection
