Peperomia prostrata is a small, vining plant with round succulent leaves that are green with white veins. It will cascade over any surface the plant can anchor to. Peperomia prostrata is from the neotropics where it is a common weed. It prefers moderate light and humid conditions. Allow to dry out slightly between waterings.

 

Container Gardens/Terrariums/Houseplant:

Peperomia prostrata's small size and delicate leaves make it a great plant for container gardens and terrariums. Although this is a spreading plant, it is easy to prune to keep under control. Peperomia prostrata will form a thick mat and does well in hanging baskets where it will cascade over the sides of the pot.

 

Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariumscontainer garden soilsdrainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor garden needs.

 

Vivariums/Animal Terrariums:

Peperomia prostrata is a great miniature for the naturalistic vivarium. Small, round succulent leaves that are green with white veins will cascade over any surface the plant can anchor to. From the neotropics where it is a common weed, Peperomia prostrata makes a very attractive accent or background plant. Peperomia prostrata is a vining plant and therefore is best planted in the background or back areas of a naturalistic vivarium where it will grow up the back and hardscape. Peperomia prostrata has moderate lighting needs. More intense light will result in quicker growth, and sometimes a reddish hue to the foliage. Peperomia prostrata is a vining plant and a fairly moderate/fast grower, spreading quite easily in a naturalistic vivarium. Peperomia prostrata does not require air circulation, but providing air circulation will aid in drying between waterings. Peperomia prostrata makes a great accent and background plant in a naturalistic vivarium.

 

As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home.

Pretty and Easy to Grow Review by Thierry
Quality
I pretty much put the vines on top of the moss and sprayed them everyday and they rooted about 4 days later. I like the way they trail down branches and the background. I bought only one plant and took cuttings from it to plant throughout the viv.
A very easy plant to grow.
Joshsfrogs has reliable shipping. Thanks. (Posted on 6/30/2016)
