Peperomia verschaffeltii 'Sweetheart'
Common Names: Rubber plant, Radiator plant
Peperomias are an all around excellent plant to take home - low maintenance (good for new plant caretakers), low-light tolerant as their natural habitat is the rainforest understory, and non-toxic to your animal friends! In addition to these stellar qualities, peperomia come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you'll likely find one that is especially interesting to you. This variety looks similar to that of a peperomia 'watermelon' with its striped pattern; however, its heart-shaped leaves earned it its name the "sweetheart."
Light: Shade Tolerant
Ease: Easy Breezy
Pet Friendly: Yes
Care: Peperomias are slow-growing and like to be slightly root bound, so you don't need to repot unless you see roots creeping out of the drainage holes of your pot.
