Peperomia 'Red Edge'

$ 20.00
Size: 4" Pot
True to its moniker, Peperomia 'Red Edge' is a breathtaking houseplant hailing from the tropical regions of Central and South America. The leaves of this gem showcase a blend of emerald green at the center, transitioning to a striking red along the edges – hence the name 'Red Edge'. The glossy leaves are further accentuated by the translucent veins that elegantly trace across the surface, making this plant an undeniable conversation starter. In terms of size, Peperomia 'Red Edge' will grow to a moderate height and width of about 8 to 12 inches, making it an ideal choice for small spaces or as a desk plant. It’s a wonderful addition to any indoor garden, but also serves as an eye-catching standalone piece. When placed in a hanging basket, the leaves will elegantly cascade downwards, creating a captivating 'waterfall' effect. Peperomia 'Red Edge' is a relatively fast grower and its stems will spread out from the base, forming a lush, dense foliage that is both visually pleasing and calming. Its bushy appearance gives it a sense of volume and presence, and its offsets can extend its visual impact even further. While this houseplant is already a showstopper with its vibrant foliage, it doesn’t stop there. The Peperomia 'Red Edge' also produces delicate, spiky flowers that resemble rat tails, adding another layer of intrigue to this exotic beauty. The flowers bloom during the summer months, providing an added burst of color and texture. This plant is more than just a pretty face, however. It is known for its air-purifying qualities, helping to clean the indoor environment by removing toxins from the air. In terms of care, Peperomia 'Red Edge' is fairly easy to maintain. It prefers bright, indirect light and well-draining soil. Overwatering should be avoided, as it can lead to root rot – a common issue for many houseplants. Instead, allow the top inch of the soil to dry out between watering. In all, the Peperomia 'Red Edge' is a unique and vibrant houseplant that combines aesthetic appeal with air-purifying benefits. Its captivating leaves, fascinating flowers, and easy-care nature make it an ideal addition to any 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!
