Peperomia obtusifolia is a species of Peperomia, named ‘obtusifolia,’ meaning blunt-leaved. Some leaves may be more obtuse than others, and some might be split, which is natural variation. Peperomias are related to black peppercorns, and are in the family Piperaceae. Like other plants in the family, the flower stalk is cream colored, and the tiny flowers lack a perianth (petals or sepals). This peperomia is easily propagated via leaf-cuttings, and is able to regenerate after completely dying back to the stem.
