About Silver Frost Peperomia
This species of Peperomia is known for its uniquely textured leaves and bright, frosty coloring. The fruits of Peperomia plants are very sticky, so they can be easily picked up by animals passing by. Their fruits and seeds have traveled one of the longest distances ever recorded for a plant, over 3000 miles to an island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, all while stuck to a bird's feet 🦅. They're very closely related to the same plants that produce black pepper, and their fruits have a similar peppery taste!

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Silver Frost Peperomia after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
My favorite plant that I own. It’s so beautiful and has a shimmery sheen to the rippled leaves! She’s been thriving since I bought her. I had it far from a window at first but now she sits in front of a northwest facing window and has done great both places. Doesn’t need frequent watering either compared to some other plants I own. Highly recommend for the ease of care and the sheer beauty of it!
