Description

The 'Ruby Glow' is another cultivator of the Peperomia family of plants. It has v-shaped, “windowed” leaves that grow from a red stem. Leaves are thick, oblong and cupped with transparent tops and and a red wine color underneath.  When it blooms, it has yellow-white flowers. It was first collected in 1973 by German botanists at an altitude range of 2000 to 2500 meters. It prefers bright to medium indirect light for best growth, and it is drought tolerant being that it is a succulent. Providing you water with caution, it is an easy to grow plant that is great for beginners. **Comes in 4'' Nursery Pot Only
