About Golden Gate Peperomia
Did you know Peperomia plants belong to the pepper family, along with black peppercorns? Their fruits and seeds have traveled one of the longest distances ever recorded, over 3000 miles to an island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, while stuck to a bird's feet! 🦅 They can be easily propagated by leaves which make them super easy to share with friends!

What other plant parents say
I got this baby sent to me in the mail much sooner than planned, and she sat in my PO Box for 11 days in the dark with no water. When I discovered her early arrival, she was healthy as all get out when I unboxed her! No leaves fell off or anything! Super strong plant.
I also really enjoy how much life she’s been giving me even after only having her for a week. I’m pretty sure we already have about 7 new leaves growing strong! Such a beautiful plant that brings so much joy to any room :)
