My name’s Perperomia obtusifolia but I'm also known as the American rubber plant or the Baby rubber plant. I'm native to South America and I'm grown for my attractive, bushy leaves. I naturally grow in the humid rain forests so please to and recreate this for me.
I’m in a 12cm pot and I’m 25cm in height.
I prefer a temperature between 18-24°C with average room humidity.
I don’t like soggy soil and direct sunlight.
LOOKING AFTER ME
I love average humidity with low to bright light levels. It's easier to water me from my base, this way I'll take up more water. Just don't forget to take me out otherwise I'll get root rot!
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m safe for pets :)
