7 Popular Peperomia Varieties You'll Love! 

Homiful.com -- Peperomias are old favorites that have been in and out of favor for decades, and they are currently enjoying a rise in popularity. These little plants flourish on a desktop, shelf, or windowsill and are ideal for modern living spaces. It's a lovely, diversified family that's a joy to gather. Here are "7 Popular Peperomia Varieties You'll Love!"

Peperomia Obtusifolia


This popular plant has spherical leaves on thick stems that grow in a zigzag pattern up to a foot long. The semi-succulent leaves are glossy and silky. The Obtusifolia is an excellent Peperomia for beginners. 

It prefers strong indirect light but may tolerate a gloomy location. Except for overwatering, it adapts to virtually everything. It would like not to be repotted on a regular basis, and is best kept in its nursery container.

‘Hope’ Peperomia


This seemingly tiny shrub is actually fairly strong. It has round, semi-succulent leaves and pink-to-orange stems that trail. The 'Hope' Peperomia prefers bright light but fades and becomes dull under bright light. Keep the soil wet if you want it to die rapidly. Otherwise, benign neglect would suffice. This patented cultivar is simple to find. 

Peperomia Argyreia (syn: Sandersii)


This eye-catching cultivar, often known as the Watermelon Peperomia, is tops the charts in popularity and instant appeal. No one needs to explain why this plant is so fascinating. The glossy green leaves are indicative of their popular name, with striking, off-center silver veins and red stems that resemble the interior of a watermelon. 

This best-selling Peperomia isn't the simplest species for newbies to keep, but it's also not impossible. The leaves are quite succulent; before rewatering, let the top two inches of soil dry up. It prefers a sunny atmosphere and enjoys humidity, but will go without.

Peperomia Ferreyrae


The cheery 'Happy Bean' Peperomia produces a cluster of green bean-shaped leaves. It's small and doesn't require humidity, making it an excellent desktop option. Ferreyrae is a succulent member of the Peperomia family, so give it plenty of sunshine and allow it to dry out between waterings. It's a good grower that doesn't mind a little pot, but make sure the soil is permeable and never becomes soggy. 

Peperomia Orba


This popular trailing species, often known as the Teardrop Peperomia, remains perky and fresh all year. It's only around six inches tall and wide, so it won't take up too much room. The little oval leaves are glossy and somewhat fuzzy, with a clean midrib indentation. 

This is a low-maintenance semi-succulent: nonetheless, avoid overwatering! It enjoys strong indirect light but is tough in general. Peperomia Orba is a popular and low-cost Peperomia variety that has led to several collections. Pixie Lime, Astrid, and Variegata are popular hybrids.

Peperomia Tetragona (syn: P. Puteolata)


This remarkable variety, sometimes known as the Parallel Peperomia, has almond-shaped leaves with sharp, alternating thin stripes of green and off-white that run alongside the midvein. The tall, strong stems are orange in color. The Tetragona is semi-tropical and prefers greater humidity, but it can adapt to ordinary levels. 

It prefers indirect light but may also work in intense light. This plant is not picky, despite its neat, clean look. It grows straight until the stems become big enough to tip over, at which point it can be cultivated as a small, trimmed bush or as a hanging plant. The Tetragona has gained popularity in recent years and is becoming more common.

Peperomia ‘Ruby Cascade’


This fast-growing stem plant's compact, spherical leaves is green on top and red-hued below, making it a vibrant, vivid hanging plant. The stems begin grow and tumble as they develop to be over two feet long - longer than the majority of trailing Peperomias. It is one among the more rapidly growing Peperomia types. 

The 'Ruby Cascade' may be used in a variety of lighting conditions. It prefers bright light but bleaches in direct sunlight; it will stretch in low light but can still look good. It's a terrific "set it and forget it" (and watch it grow) variety. The soil should be allowed to dry between waterings; it's an excellent choice for desert interiors because it doesn't require humidity.
