Dark Green Beetle Radiator Plant

English name:

Dark Green Beetle Radiator Plant

Latin name:

Peperomia angulata ‘Rocca Scuro’

About me:

I am a lesser seen member of the Peperomia genus. I sport fine, neatly-traced  leaves on long hanging stems.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am from Peru

Height/Growth

I am slow-growing and will reach 20-30cm in height but my vines can get longer than that

Light

I love medium light and really dislike direct sunlight

Water

I store water in my leaves so only water me when the soil has dried out and never leave me sitting in water

Temperature

A warm environment is best, I'll suffer if I'm in a room below 12°C

Feeding

A balanced fertiliser once a month in spring and summer is enough for me

Grooming

I’m super easy - just dust my leaves regularly!

Care

Overwatering is my most likely cause of illness. I can withstand droughts but overly wet soil can kill me

Toxicity

Perfectly safe for all

Fact

The name Peperomia is derived from the Greek ‘peperi’ meaning ‘pepper’ and ‘homoios’, which means ‘resembling’
