This Melastomaceae hails from China and only reaches 7-8 inches. It is easy to grow and well suited to terrarium culture, although it may be able to survive in an open air environment. It slightly resembles Peperomia, with its rounded leaves and rosette forming habits. New growth is bright red, and older leaves are a dark green. All leaves possess white spotting along the midveins.
The available plants are well rooted and growing in 2″ pots. They have at least 6 leaves and will be shipped bare root.
*Note* P. cavaleriei is the plant in the photos with large round reddish leaves, not the plant with lots of white spots.
