Peperomia Caperata Silver Ripple, shade house plant or terrarium plant

Item Description

Peperomia caperata Silver Ripple is very similar to the Raspberry Ripple Peperomia I also have listed in my shop https://eclecticasiacreation.indiemade.com/product/peperomia-caperata-raspberry-ripple-shade-house-plant-or-terrarium-plant

but in this variety the heavily puckered heart shaped leaves have a silvery appearance and more creamy flower spikes throughout the Summer (last year these were still flowering in September).

This attractive Brazilian native Peperomia also needs moist, well drained soil in partial shade. It will tolerate dry soil to some degree, but not permanently wet roots. It will require a minimum of 60F and can also be grown in a terrarium.

These plants are currently growing in 3" pots, similar to the one pictured, which must be sent protected bareroot in moist sphagnum moss (i.e. not in the pot/soil it is in presently) to comply with various State regulations. Plants are sent by Priority mail on Mondays/Tuesdays, occasionally Wednesdays for locations close to VT. to more readily ensure delivery before weekend.
