Description

Peperomia scandens ‘Variegata’ is also known as the Cupid Peperomia and is the variegated version of Peperomia scandens ‘Green’.  It is a vining, epiphytic plant that can reach 24-36 inches in height.  It is a popular houseplant due to its hardiness and ease of care.  It has thick, glossy , heart-shaped light green leaves with an irregular, cream-coloured to pale yellow border. 

Tiny, green flowers are borne on spike inflorescences that resemble rat tails.

Environment

Keep in indirect sunlight. Any window besides South facing ones should work well. Cupid Peperomia 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.

Landscape Uses

Kitchens, Bathrooms , Greenhouse & Terrarium

Note

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