Common Name: Peperomia Clusiifolia 'Jellie', Variegated Red Edged Radiator Plant, Jelly Peperomia
Availabilty: In Stock
The unique Peperomia Jelly is a truly gorgeous evergreen, boasting striking variegated foliage starting with emerald green in the centre and fading out to beautiful red, pale pink and cream tones on the outer edges. The fleshy, frilly leafed foliage is often mistaken as a succulent due to her thick leaves storing water (yay, less watering!)
This favourite of interior designers offers incredible colour contrast indoors or out, and divinely low-care requirements. Peperomia varieties are famously low-maintenance, even thriving on a bit of neglect (or a lot, depending on your style). A little extra TLC can encourage the small, white flowers to appear spring-autumn.
Growing up to approximately 250mm tall, this little baby has a bushy growth habit and is hardy to boot. She is gorgeous potted up in containers, kept on patios, grown inside or in mixed beds. She doesn't technically trail, but many enjoy utilising her climbing or creeping habit to beautiful result in hanging baskets.
Pinch tips to encourage or control growth, and her small root system means you never have to re-pot her. Keep in a bright environment to maintain vivid colouring, but she prefers part shade to bright, full shade outdoors. If growing indoors, she prefers bright, filtered sunlight and only occasional watering (when the soil is dried out - hey, we told she was low-care!).
Highly tolerant to humidity. Frost sensitive. Well drained soils. Part to full shade when outdoors, or bright filtered sunlight indoors.
