Plant Bio

The Peperomia obtusifolia is native to the Tropical Americas and Caribbean, and is in the family Piperaceae. A popular houseplant, it is sometimes called a baby rubber plant because of its thick green leaves. This peperomia is easily propagated via leaf-cuttings, and is able to regenerate after completely dying back to the stem. Like other peperomias, the Obtusifolia is non-toxic, making it safe to keep around your furry friends. Under ideal conditions, it will flower indoors, producing narrow white spikes.
