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.
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.

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