So Pretty! Hasn’t browned one leaf since I have had it. I don’t have it in direct sunlight (it’s in the middle of my dining table in a fish bowl). And it looks fake, I promise it’s real but it looks like plastic! Love it

So easy to look after! If the leaves start dropping a little just water it and it will be revived the next day! So many new leaves growing all the time and she’s starting to bloom flowers now that it’s spring so precious!

Peperomia has beautiful round leaves with heavy strations that make the mottled color of the leaves even more dynamic they only need moderate light can dry out some between waterings it has almost a no maintenance plant for me

So I bought this plant from Home Depot and I thought it was cool because it had these dangling tentacle like things. I took it home, realized that it needed water badly. The soil was so dry. I watered it and the next day 3/15 tentacles were standing up and the soil was dry again. This plant is a trooper! I’ve had it only a few days, but it is very responsive and alerting to its needs so far and I love that for it.
