A member of the Piperaceae family, this compact plant has short stems covered by heart-shaped, deeply ridged leaves. The leaves are green, sometimes with a blush of red, and dark green veins.

 

Most varieties of Peperomia plants prefer medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light. Peperomia plants are not suited for intense, direct sun.

 

Water moderately during summer and sparingly during winter with water that is room temperature. Fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer.

 

These plants are non-toxic for cats and dogs. 

 

One unique aspect of Peperomia is that all that their foliage purifies the air, according to NASA research. The supplementary Wolverton's Clean Air study shows that Peperomia reduces the level of formaldehyde indoors by 47% and that's good to know because a significant portion of indoor air is made up of the substance.
