Marble Peperomia, Peperomia obtusifola Marble, houseplant, variegated, potted plant



The Marble Peperomia (Peperomia Obtusifolia 'marble') . This peperomia species enjoys bright, indirect light. It likes indoor temperatures and should be kept above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. As a tropical plant native to Central America, it is not cold tolerant. It will grow to about a foot tall with many thick branches. It can be pruned for shape or size. It is suitable not only for table-top display, but also hanging planters.

Preferring a light, airy potting mix, the biggest mistake in caring for the Peperomia Obtusifolia is over-watering. Let the soil dry between watering so that root rot doesn't develop.
Each leaf of the marble cultivar of Peperomia obtusifolia presents a pronounced and unique pattern of varying shades of golden yellow intermixed with the normal green. It differs from the normal variegated Peperomia because the paatern is distributed throughout the leaves rather than concentrated around the perimeter and the coloring is not just the yellow or the green, but presents areas of mixed coloration making light green, green gold, and all the mixed shades between the light gold of the variegated with the normal green.

This offer is for one plant potted in a four inch nursery pot. They are firmly rooted and showing new growth. Your plant will be securely packed for shipment by USPS Priority Mail to ensure quick transit time and minimize potential shipping damage.

This plant is not cold tolerant, so if your area, New Hampshire or areas in between are experiencing temperatures below fifty degrees, please order a heat pack with your shipment to keep it alive. The heat packs are cheap, just priced to cover our costs. As with any live plant order, please open and unpack the plant as soon as it is delivered to minimize shipping stress.

Each order will include complete care instructions for the Peperomia obtusifolia 'marble'. This is a fairly easy to care for houseplant that is tolerant of occasional missed watering.

We can't accept returns for live plants, but if there are any issues, please contact us immediately. As with all live plants, please open the package as soon as your plant is delivered.

The postal service seemed to have personal beef with my package from this shop and it was still the happiest, healthiest batch of plants I've ever received in the mail. Wonderfully packaged, not a broken leaf in sight. The heat pack was packaged perfectly so as not to damage the plants (I feel like this happens to me a lot). The marble peperomia is so much fuller and bigger than I expected. Absolutely my best etsy plant purchase experience. The pricing and care can't be beat.

Wonderfully packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Thank you so much! The plants are beautiful!
