The Peperomia obtusifolia is characterized by its thick, upright stems with glossy, spoon-shaped leaves, which store water. In its natural habit, the plants leaves will shrivel in drought and plump after it rains. The leaves are typically a vibrant green but can also have white-and-green variegation that resembles marbling. Peperomia needs bright to medium indirect sunlight. You should water your plant every 1-2 weeks allowing soil to dry completely between watering. A sign of overwatering is leaves turning yellow and then dropping. Peperomia obtusifolia is pet-friendly!
