Peperomia sp. Silver Veins

by Chuck Nishihira

Here is a Peperomia species that elevates modesty into something special.  It is a muted colored species with silvery veins that complement each other perfectly. I do not know much about this species other than it is from Peru.  It is a bit tender, and will die back for me quite easily.  In my case I believe it is a problem with temperature,  maybe a cooler situation will be more suitable to this species.  It’s trailing habit coupled with it’s gentle colors are very distinctive.

Concerning the photos, apparently there are days when I can only focus on one thing at a time! On this day I only succeeded in getting one leaf in focus per photo!
