Peperomia is one of the two large genera of the family Piperaceae. Most of them are compact, small perennial epiphytes growing on rotten wood. More than 1500 species have been recorded, occurring in all tropical and subtropical regions of the world, though concentrated in Central America and northern South America. These plants are pet-friendly and good for beginners.
Peperomia 'Piccolo Banda'
Popular for its bright colors and small leaves, these plants will thrive in bright, indirect light and will tolerate shade and fluorescent lights. Avoid direct sunlight. Water when the soil has almost dried out and make to to not overwater. Water is stored in the leaves making these plants drought resistant. These plants love humidity to mist frequently.
Peperomia Argyreia 'Watermelon'
Known best for its attractive leaves, this plant is pretty slow growing. Like its natural habitat on the jungle floor, it likes to be placed in a bright, shady spot. In direct sun, the leaves will burn and may cause your plant to die. Be sure to allow the plant to dry out before watering , but be careful, under-watering will cause the plant to drop leaves . Propagating this plant is super easy, so when a leaf and the stem are no longer part of the main node, stick that stem in water and watch the roots grow till they're long enough to be placed back into soil.
