The Peperomia Amigo Marcello is an unassuming Peperomia, with attractive arrow-shaped lime green foliage. That will cascade gracefully, making it a great option for a hanging display or shelf adornment.

As with all Peperomia, the Amigo is an epiphyte by nature, found cambering along the ground and through trees in its natural habitat. Due to this, they have developed semi-succulent foliage. Though, compared to many Peperomia that prefer their soil to dry out, the Peperomia Amigo Marcello appreciates consistent barely damp soil.

They'll also love a bit of Humidity, making them a fabulous candidate for a bright warm bathroom or Kitchen. Though, will be perfectly happy as a desk companion in the office or trailing off a shelf in your living room.

This Peperomia is pretty easy to care for and will tolerate a variety of lighting conditions, from bright indirect light to artificial lighting spaces. Overall, this is a definite must-have addition to any home or office decor, for a much-needed pop of green.

Please Note: This plant is non-toxic. 

Follow these instructions to keep your Peperomia healthy and happy.

Water: Keep the soil barely moist and allow the top layer (about 3 - 4cm) to dry out between watering. During winter, reduce watering further and allow the soil to dry out halfway before watering again. 
Light: Medium to bright light is best. Keep out of the direct sun.
Humidity: Appreciates humidity. Mist your plant often to create a rainforest vibe.
Fertilize: Feed with good organic fertilizer (diluted) every month from Spring to Autumn
