Peperomia asperula

$ 12.00
Size: 2"

Introducing the Peperomia asperula, a rare gem among succulents that calls the diverse ecosystems of South America its home. This distinctive plant features a compact, bushy growth habit, with leaves that are a deep, velvety green, often appearing almost black under certain lighting conditions. The leaves are thick and textured, with a rough, almost sandpaper-like feel, which is where it gets its name 'asperula', meaning 'rough' in Latin.

Typically reaching a modest size of about 8 to 10 inches in both height and width, the Peperomia asperula makes a perfect addition to small spaces, requiring minimal care to thrive. Its unique foliage creates a striking contrast when placed among other houseplants, making it a standout in any indoor garden collection. While it might not produce the showy flowers characteristic of some succulents, its allure lies in the rich texture and color of its leaves, which are capable of adding depth and interest to any plant arrangement.

Well-suited for terrariums or as a desk plant, the Peperomia asperula prefers indirect light and enjoys a well-draining soil mix, typical of most succulents. Its watering needs are modest, requiring only occasional watering when the soil has completely dried out. This resilience and ease of care make it an ideal choice for both seasoned plant enthusiasts and beginners alike.

Whether nestled in a mixed container garden, standing solo in a decorative pot, or enhancing a terrarium landscape, the Peperomia asperula is a captivating addition that promises to bring a touch of exotic allure to your indoor plant collection.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
