This no-fuss Peperomia does wonderfully as a houseplant or in a terrarium. Its vigor and resilience make it an ideal plant for beginners and those looking for a plant they can quickly share with friends (it propagates readily from leaf cuttings). There are many forms of caperata in cultivation, this one has a lot of pink. I have no idea how it got into my collection. I think it may have grown from seed. So, I don’t know anything about its origins.
