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.
