Peperomia Info

Peperomia flowering - Peperomia turboensis Vivarium peperomia - Peperomia 'Ripple' Peperomia flower - Peperomia prostrata
Peperomia is a widely distributed tropical & subtropical genre of plants thought to contain over 1400 different species. The majority of these can be found in tropical America, although a limited number also grow in Africa, Australia, Madagascar, and the Philippines. One of the things that makes Peperomia easily identifiable is their flower spikes, illustrated in a couple of the photos above. The majority of these are fairly small, and many of the types we work with can can be grown epiphytically. We consider Peperomia plants an especially versatile, easy, and rewarding choice for use in an enclosed terrarium environment.

About Our Peperomia

Peperomia At NEHERP
We've been working with Peperomia since we opened for business, and they are some of our favorite plants to grow. While a few varieties we work with can be grown as a houseplant, the majority of the plants in our lineup are best housed in a terrarium. Their flexible growing habits and potential to be grown epiphytically (usually) mean some of these species will do equally well planted terrestrially or mounted to a custom background. With reasonable lighting requirements and their forgiving nature, Peperomia are an awesome choice for anyone designing a tropical or subtropical live vivarium environment. Our collection of these grows every year, and are always looking to acquire new & exciting varieties for our lineup.

How We Grow Our Peperomia
We grow our Peperomia under either custom LEDs or basic T5HO grow lights depending on the species. For reference, the PAR rating of our Peperomia growing areas ranges from 45-95µMol/M²S at plant level, depending on the species. We maintain relative humidity between 65-75%, keep temperatures between 68-85F, and utilize automated misting & watering cycles whenever we can. Although they can be grown epiphytically, the majority of ours are simply grown in our specially mixed organic potting soil. The available plants are raised in the mild potting soil and ship before they require additional nutrients, but the mother plant stock we propagate from are fed using extremely mild, balanced, organic nutrients every 2-3 months. That same regimen would likely be a good starting place for your new plants, if you don't plan on keeping them in a vivarium. (No additional fertilization should be required in a viv!) We're proud of the Peperomia we grow, and we're confident you'll love the plants you receive!

Growing Peperomia Plants In A Bioactive Terrarium / Live Vivarium
In a vivarium, we'd recommend either mounting these epiphytically using a Plant Mounting Kit, or simply planting them terrestrially using a Vivarium Base Kit. Any of our Vivarium Lighting Kits would work with these plants, with the LED options performing best. So long as the plants are added to an enclosure built to the specifications described in Vivarium Construction 101 & 102, maintenance should be fairly straightforward & limited with the majority of the plants we carry. Every individual plant below has more specific info to check out, so scroll down to see what we'd recommend!

Potted Plants:

Best Terrarium Plants For The Price Bare Rooted & Wrapped With ID
Plant nurseries roughly categorize their plants by pot size, and a plant is made available once it has mostly filled out it's container. Generally speaking, a 4in potted plant is roughly twice the size of a 3in pot, and a 3in potted plant is typically twice the size of a 2in pot. Needless to say, we do our best to offer big & healthy plants which were categorized honestly, and are representative of the photos we've got listed on the site. Every potted plant we sell is shipped bare root, and the root ball of the plant is carefully wrapped in paper towels before it's placed back into it's cleaned pot for shipping. From there, it's wrapped in clean brown packing paper and labeled with it's species before shipping.
 

Live Mats:

Healthy Background Plants For Terrariums How We Ship Live Mat Terrarium Plants
We're proud to offer a brand new way to order plants, and we're loving the results so far. Our Live Mats are grown with plenty of light & the ideal amount of moisture required to form a dense mat. Before shipping, each section is gently separated from it's sealed container, rinsed free of excess potting soil, and carefully placed in a partially inflated airtight bag. Depending on the specific plant, live mats can planted terrestrially or attached to a background to grow epiphytically. These are exceptionally dense portions of plants, so a little can go a long way!
 

Rooted Portions:

How We Ship Rooted Portions Of Terrarium Plants
Some plants we grow are offered in rooted portions, which are slightly smaller portions than would typically be included in a 3in pot. The length and overall portion size depends on the species being offered, but these do include a portion of the root system for easy planting & fast acclimation. When it comes time to ship, we'll carefully separate the portion from it's mother plant, rinse the roots free of potting soil, and carefully wrap the roots in a ball of moist paper towels. From there, the plant is wrapped in clean brown packing paper and labeled with it's species before shipping.
 

Clippings:

How We Ship Clippings For Terrarium Plants
Clippings are the smallest size portion of what we offer. Depending on the species, clippings may or may not include small attached roots. Plants we sell as clippings are typically epiphytic in nature, meaning they'll grow without soil on the surface of another plant (or wood decor, backgrounds, etc). The difficulty in planting clippings depends entirely on the species, so don't hesitate to ask before ordering if you are curious. When it comes time to ship, we carefully clean, wrap, and seal our clippings in partially filled bags to ensure the safest transit possible. Like everything else we sell, these are individually labeled with ID.

On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This terrestrial-growing Peperomia has dark elliptic leaves patterned with metallic green markings. The leaves are a bit smaller, more narrow, and have a brighter green coloration than the more common 'Columbiana' cultivar. We haven't had the chance to grow this as a houseplant, but assume it'll do well with the same care we've used for the more common variety. (Partial shade to filtered sun & keep soil moist) In a terrarium this plant grows upward of 6-8in tall and spreads outward with time. It does well in high humidity, so long as it's not in overly-wet conditions. We purchased this plant as Peperomia metallica 'Ecuador' back in 2018, but here seems to be a few names floating around for what seems to be this same cultivar. (We suspect the 'Narrow Leaf' form may be the same!) If you've got concrete info with regard to the cultivar name of this plant, please let us know. We're eager to learn more!

As a houseplant, Peperomia orba does especially well planted in a hanging basket/pot. In an enclosure, this plant is easiest to grow terrestrially, but can also be mounted epiphytically with a little extra effort. So long as it's roots don't stay too wet, this species is fairly forgiving.

Peperomia prostrata

Peperomia prostrata Peperomia prostrata
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This is one of the more sought-after Peperomia species in the live vivarium hobby. It's native to tropical South America, and it's delicate trailing pattern makes it an excellent vivarium plant. The tiny (~1/8-3/8in) leaves of this species have awesome patterns with colors which brighten or fade depending on the conditions. In our experience higher amounts of PAR (75+µMol/M²S) in higher humidity (75% R/H) allows the plant to present with it's boldest coloration & quickest growth. As a houseplant kept in a hanging basket or pot, it's higher humidity requirements can require a little extra care (misting) than some of our other Peperomia. This is one of the more difficult of the usually easy to grow Peperomia species we offer, and isn't available often. Does best when planted up high and is allowed to hang & trail downward. Tolerates low to moderate amounts of light, and does best with moist soil.

Peperomia turboensis Peperomia turboensis
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Peperomia turboensis is a real beauty, and is a less-than-common species. While growing this as a houseplant is totally possible, it's most commonly kept in some type of humid enclosure. With a metallic sheen on every leaf and a compact growth pattern, this humidity-loving plant couldn't be more well suited to live in a live vivarium. Tolerates a wide range of conditions, but the deeper colors will appear when grown under higher humidity & fair levels of PAR light (50µMol/M²S+).

Peperomia eburnea

Peperomia eburnea Peperomia eburnea
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This is a fairly uncommon species which we only have available in small quantities. Peperomia eburnea features ovate green leaves, and will grow easily in either a trailing or scandent pattern. The leaves feature visible white vein structure, with the color variance growing deeper in higher PAR conditions. This species can be grown epiphytically in a humid environment if it's kept on a reasonably moist surface. We have not yet attempted to grow this plant as a "houseplant", and have only kept them in enclosed environments. In a terrarium, Peperomia eburnea does best when mounted up high & allowed to trail downward. It stays around 3-4in high before beginning to hang & spread downward.

Columbian Peperomia

Peperomia metallica 'Columbiana' Peperomia metallica 'Columbiana'
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This terrestrial Peperomia has dark rounded leaves patterned with metallic silver markings. It's stems have a cool red hue which makes the plant stand out even more. It's a terrestrial grower, and will tolerate life as a houseplant when planted with moist soil and kept in partial shade to filtered sun. It's especially forgiving in a terrarium, where it will slowly grow upward to 6-8in tall & grow outward with time. Does well in high humidity, so long as it's not in overly-wet conditions. Easy to grow, propagate, and trim as necessary.

Peperomia metallica 'Ecuador'*

Red Tree Peperomia

Peperomia metallica 'Ecuador' Peperomia metallica 'Ecuador'
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This terrestrial-growing Peperomia has dark elliptic leaves patterned with metallic green markings. The leaves are a bit smaller, more narrow, and have a brighter green coloration than the more common 'Columbiana' cultivar. We haven't had the chance to grow this as a houseplant, but assume it'll do well with the same care we've used for the more common variety. (Partial shade to filtered sun & keep soil moist) In a terrarium this plant grows upward of 6-8in tall and spreads outward with time. It does well in high humidity, so long as it's not in overly-wet conditions. We purchased this plant as Peperomia metallica 'Ecuador' back in 2018, but here seems to be a few names floating around for what seems to be this same cultivar. (We suspect the 'Narrow Leaf' form may be the same!) If you've got concrete info with regard to the cultivar name of this plant, please let us know. We're eager to learn more!

Peperomia prostrata

Peperomia prostrata Peperomia prostrata
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This is one of the more sought-after Peperomia species in the live vivarium hobby. It's native to tropical South America, and it's delicate trailing pattern makes it an excellent vivarium plant. The tiny (~1/8-3/8in) leaves of this species have awesome patterns with colors which brighten or fade depending on the conditions. In our experience higher amounts of PAR (75+µMol/M²S) in higher humidity (75% R/H) allows the plant to present with it's boldest coloration & quickest growth. As a houseplant kept in a hanging basket or pot, it's higher humidity requirements can require a little extra care (misting) than some of our other Peperomia. This is one of the more difficult of the usually easy to grow Peperomia species we offer, and isn't available often. Does best when planted up high and is allowed to hang & trail downward. Tolerates low to moderate amounts of light, and does best with moist soil.

Peperomia turboensis is a real beauty, and is a less-than-common species. While growing this as a houseplant is totally possible, it's most commonly kept in some type of humid enclosure. With a metallic sheen on every leaf and a compact growth pattern, this humidity-loving plant couldn't be more well suited to live in a live vivarium. Tolerates a wide range of conditions, but the deeper colors will appear when grown under higher humidity & fair levels of PAR light (50µMol/M²S+). Does best with a well draining soil that's allowed to dry slightly between watering.
