With its highly ornamental appearance, thanks to the saucer-like, glossy green leaves and thick stems the Peperomia Obtusifolia, or Baby Rubber plant makes for an alluring addition to any indoor setting.
Whilst not a member of the succulent family, these plants share similar characteristics making them an excellent option for the beginner houseplant enthusiast. These plants are relatively drought-tolerant, as they store water in their leaves, making them capable of withstanding mild laxness.
The Baby Rubber Plant is a part of our Child & Pet-Friendly Range.
These indoor plants prefer medium to bright light in a spot where they will not experience intense, direct sunlight.
Baby Rubber Plants are drought tolerant and prefer to be watered when their soil completely dries out. In the summer months, this can take over a week.
They come from a rainforest environment so they like to be misted occasionally, but they are an easy-going plant that will survive in most household environments.
They have a compact root system so they don’t need to be repotted often, making it an ideal office plant.
