A native of the tropical regions of South America, Peperomia make wonderful houseplants in the UK.
Peperomia ‘Raindrop Feel Green’ is a striking, compact variety with beautiful dark green, glossy leaves which loves bright and warm conditions and appreciates additional humidity either from regular misting or by standing in a tray of wet pebbles.
The heart shaped leaves have a lush, succulent look to them and as ‘Raindrop Feel Green’ is naturally compact and only grow to 30cm, it’s ideal on a desk or windowsill, away from direct sunlight. As the plant matures it produces unusual and interesting looking flowers that look a little like mouse tails, but Peperomia is grown mainly for its wonderfully attractive leaves.
Slow growing in very easy to care for, it’ll need virtually no maintenance apart from the removed of faded leaves and flowers, and regular feeding and watering.
