The Peperomia Obtusifolia is a succulent-like variety of Peperomia, originally found in the rainforests of South America. Also known as the Baby Rubber Plant, it has characterized by its thick upright stems with glossy, oversized leaves.
The baby rubberplant or pepper face, Peperomia obtusifolia, is a flowering plant in the Piperaceae family endemic to Florida, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Obtusifolia is a particular epithet that means "blunt-leaved." The Royal Horticultural Society has given the plant the Award of Garden Merit.
Although it requires high humidity, it does not require much attention; good lighting (without becoming excessive) is sufficient to keep the bright and strong colour of the leaves; so they do not require excessive watering. Its leaves become discoloured when exposed to direct light; nonetheless, normal lighting is sufficient. Numerous cultivars have been created, some of which feature leaf variegation, making it a popular houseplant.
