Peperomia species Tingo Maria

This is an interesting species of Peperomia from the Tingo Maria area of Peru. The compact plant will produce upright stems that get to be about 3 inches or so tall. At this point new growths will start from the base. Eventually a pretty clump, with the red hairy stems and round intricately marked leaves will form. To add to the attractiveness, the new growth will come out with a lot of red tones. And of course the fuzziness of the leaves can only be a positive too! This species looks particularly nice growing on a rock or piece of wood.
