Variegated Baby Rubber Plant - Peperomia obtusifolia variegata
Feel free to get right in this houseplant's personal space and admire the marbled variegation on its hardy leaves. Peperomia variegata is an attractive, variegated version of the Baby Rubber Plant, with all of the same cherished characteristics, plus an added advantage: multiple shades of dark green, olive green and a lovely creamy white.
It is a bushy, upright plant with thick stems and fleshy, glossy, cupped leaves. It has a compact, spreading nature and is particularly suited to growing in low or fluorescent light, making it perfect for offices and shady spots. It forms narrow spikes of off-white flowers on red-brown stems.
The Peperomia obtusifolia varigatia is a true easy-care plant as it is drought tolerant and rarely requires fertilization. This houseplant is perfect for the forgetful indoor gardener!
