This peperomia is very appreciated for the texture and coloring of its foliage. Its compact habit and small heart-shaped leaves match any decor. The 'Abricos' variety has dark, raised foliage variegated with pink. In addition, colored varieties resist the sun better than the all-green variety. Peperomias fear excess water and prefer to be cramped in their pot.

Non-toxic to animals.
