Peperomia sp. Banos Ecuador


An old time terrarium classic, Peperomia sp. Banos Ecuador is a charming trailing species whose foliage only reaches about 1/4 inch.  It has a pretty reddish-pink stem (color varies depending on conditions) and the foliage has green venation with pale red between the leaf veins.  It can be slow to acclimate but is a quick grower when established, and will form a mat across a horizontal surface, or drape down in a pendant fashion over a branch.

The available plants have aerial roots and are approximately 12″ long.  They will be shipped bare root.  This one should be placed in a sealed terrarium with very high humidity until it is rooted.  It withers quickly if left in open air until it has established itself.
