Peperomia caperata

Peperomias are a genus of tropical indoor plants indigenous to Mexico, South America and the Caribbean. Bold and thick fleshy leaves add to their hardiness and drought tolerance. These plants are highly sought-after for their attractive ornamental foliage that effortlessly brings a space to life.
