Say hello to my small, but growing peperomia family! I love them for their thick, succulent-like leaves and beautiful foliage. Starting from the top left, I have a couple pilea peperomioides which have been probably the more difficult plants hat I have kept. The bigger pilea is doing much happier and sturdier, while the small baby one has been on the struggle bus a little bit. They seem to be hyper-sensitive to overwatering and too much sunlight, so I’m trying to find the right balance for the young, delicate leaves of the baby pilea. To the right of it is my peperomia hope, which is absolutely gorgeous and has super thick, coin like leaves. It’s growing new leaves and doing super happy! The peperomia obtusifolia currently propagating in water is a cutting I took from work. As soon as I saw it, I immediately fell in love with its thick, waxy leaves!
The emerald ripple peperomia on the bottom right was a plant I got in October. I literally got it in a 2.5 inch pot, super tiny. Since then, it’s grown several new leaves, and loves being misted every day. Finally, the parallel peperomia plants are also cuttings from a friend that I stuck directly into soil. I have had it for around a month now, and I finally saw some new growth happening yesterday which is very exciting. These leaves feel almost feel like cardboard, which is so interesting.
Peperomias are getting super popular, and it’s many people’s favorite plant family, for a good reason! Will update again.
