Peperomia obtusifolia

An ornamental plant grown primarily for the foliage. Its growth habit is bushy in with glossy green leaves. Leaves have a fleshy succulent look and feel about them and the thin stems are non woody. Most will grow up to 25 - 30 cm (9"-12") in height and will trail. 

Care Overview
Peperomias are easy to grow indoors with adequate light and humidity .Light is an important factor to consider when finding a spot indoors, in the winter especially a sunny south facing window with a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight. 

The baby rubber plant is fairly easy to water. Allow the top soil to dry out completely and then water thoroughly. It is best to lean towards less water than too much water to avoid waterlogging the root system. During winter, water sparingly as the thick leaves will store water, so don't get too concerned about the soil being dry. 

Note: If stems begin overgrowing and look leggy or spindly, pinch out the top of certain stems to stop growth. Pinching will promote new growth and give better shape to the plant. To keep them looking their best, prune them regularly to display a bushy appearance.
