Peperomia Pepperface is a slow growing, succulent-like houseplant. Unlike succulents, they are accustomed to growing in medium or low light. There are over 100 different varieties of Peperomia, each with their own shape, size, and colour combination. Peperomia is part of a large family of plants and is actually related to pepper.

Pepperface variegated have rounded, light green leaves with cream variegation. Also known as a baby rubber plant, Peperomia like high levels of humidity. Pepperface variegated will lose its variegation when kept in consistently low light, so it is best to provide medium light for this species. Never place a Peperomia in direct sun, as it could scorch the leaves.
Peperomia's are not drought tolerant, but do not like sitting in wet soil either. Water the soil thoroughly, letting excess drain. Allow the top of the soil it to dry between waterings. Peperomia's are great for beginners because of their laid back attitude.
