Family

Piperaceae

Origin

Peru

Description

Peperomia columella is a succulent with fleshy ascending stems densely covered with alternately arranged leaves. It grows to about 20 cm in height. The stem is covered by the alternately arranged leaves. The leaves are fleshy, thick, arranged in five spiral lines, shaped like a horseshoe, bright green in color. The leaves store water and then use it during drought periods. The leaves are composed of window tissue a transparent tissue extending from the epidermis down into the leaf which allows light penetration to the interior photosynthetic tissue.

Blooming occurs during the spring and buds are borne at the top of the stem. The flowers are tiny, tail-like and light green in color.

Environment

Keep in indirect sunlight. Any window besides South facing ones should work well. Generally an easy care plant, the Peperomia can become leggy if not given enough sun

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

Landscape Uses

Kitchens, Bathrooms , Greenhouse & Terrarium

Note

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

 

Peperomia plants are really good houseplants. They come in a variety of variations which make them incredible to look at.
You should water a peperomia plant once the top 1-2 inches of the soil dries completely and then water the plant thoroughly. Overwatering is the number one problem of killing this plant. Signs of overwatering of peperomia plants can be rotting stalks, wilting or yellowing leaves, a heavy pot and waterlogged soil.
Peperomia plants do best in bright indirect light or filtered light. They cannot handle direct sun as it scorches their leaves. If the light provided is less sufficient, the plant tends to stretch a bit towards the light which is very noticeable.
