Baby Rubber Plant
Size (Can grow to)
Small 10 -25cm
The Peperomia obtusifolia is native to Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean. Commonly called Baby Rubber Plant, Pepper Face or Jade. This flowering evergreen perennial can grow to approx 25cm tall. The flowers are inconsequential and the Baby Rubber Plant is grown for its beautiful broad, cupped leathery leaves. The Baby Rubber Plant grows well in bright indirect light. Position your plant in an east or west facing window. They will even grow under fluorescent lights which also makes them great for offices or apartments too. Insufficient light will cause the growth to slow and direct sunlight will burn the leaves. They don't' need a lot of water, allow the top 50% of soil to dry before you water, as they can store water in the thick leaves.
