Peperomia prostrata

Common Name(s):

Description

A delicate trailing vining plant with round, succulent variegated leaves.  They are perfect potted plants either in a terrarium, outdoor container or hanging basket.  They trail and spread but are not aggressive.  They prefer evenly moist soil but can suffer from overwatering so be wary of the other plants it shares a container with if they are high water users.  They do well to be pot-bound.
