About Peperomia 'Rosso'
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
This plant hasn’t changed much since I got it but it hasn’t gone downhill either. It’s also just very gorgeous to look at which definitely adds point for me. I’ve noticed this stagnation in my other plants as well so I fertilized/fed them with some eggshells and liquid fertilizer. Im hoping this will get me some more noticeable growth.
