IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plants
out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them
into a pot with moist soil. Give
the roots opportunity to reachdown for water.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at
the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing.
We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time.
A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Pepperomia graveolens

Peperomia is in the piperaceae family and Pepperomia graveolens come from Peru and Ecuador. They form small plants with wine red stems and succulent leaves that are wine red except on the upper side where there is a v-shaped transparent "window" to enable photosynthesis. They come from high altitudes and do best with good airflow and a soil that allows the water to run quickly away from the roots. Wet soil is not good for pepperomias. They have leaves with red undersides because the light from the forest floors is green in spectrum, and green leaves reflect green light. However, red leaves can absorb and utilize some of the light to enable photosnynthesis. Very porous soil with excellent drainage. Filtered to bright light with ample airflow. Water when dry and allow to dry between watering. They are not frost tolerant.
