Description

Peperomia ‘Ginny.’ is a small houseplant with has an upright growth habit and large leaves. This compact plant  has thick elliptical leaves which are medium green edged in creamy white blushed with rosy-pink. They are slightly concave and held on pink-red petioles (leaf stems) alternating along the thick stems. The pale green flowers are minute and packed tightly on slender spikes which sometime branch produced at the stem tips or from stems along the leaf joints. Flowering occurs throughout the year on mature plants. Fruits are small and have warty surfaces

Its preference for higher humidity levels and tendency to stay relatively compact make this plant a great choice for terrariums.

Environment

Keep in indirect sunlight. Any window besides South facing ones should work well. Peperomia Clusiifolia  is known to grow very well under artificial lighting, which means it’s a great option for darker rooms.

It needs plenty of air around the roots, hence a relatively loose soil with good drainage would be ideal.

Kitchens, Bathrooms , Greenhouse & Terrarium

Note

One unique aspect of Peperomia is that all their foliage purifies the air, according to NASA research
