Peperomia sp. Rio Blanco

by Chuck Nishihira

A Peperomia species with a wonderful shape and arrangement.  The peperomias with beautiful markings and bright colors garner most of the attention in the hobby, and rightfully so, but hopefully species like this one will find a lot of admirers too! This photograph was taken near Rio Blanco in the Cordillera del Condor, Ecuador. The elevation was roughly 2000 meters.
