If you're looking for an easy, forgiving yet delightful houseplant suitable for a variety of conditions, then give the Parallel Peperomia a try!

Peperomias have soared in popularity over the last few years and it’s easy to see why. There are thousands of varieties in cultivation so there really is something for everyone! This plant is native to South America, where it grows at ground level in tropical and subtropical conditions.

As a houseplant, the Parallel Peperomia is extremely easy going and likes moderate, indirect light. It copes well with average household humidity but can thrive in more humid settings such as a kitchen or bathroom. It would also be a great addition to a terrarium, so is a truly versatile choice. Water thoroughly using water at room temperature when the top layer of soil has dried out… If you occasionally forget to water your plants, this is a great option as it is extremely forgiving!

This plant is great for smaller spaces and has a compact growth habit which is very versatile. As a smaller specimen, the foliage grows upright, making it great for a tabletop position, which will allow the eye-catching pinstriped leaves to be fully appreciated. Over time it will start to trail, making it the perfect addition to a shelf or displayed in a plant hanger

Note: Please be aware that whilst the plant is non-toxic and pet friendly, it’s best to keep out of reach of children and pets (hanging it would be a great way of doing this!)
