Peperomia obtusifolia, the baby rubber plant or pepper face, is a species of flowering plant in the family Piperaceae, native to Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean. The specific epithet obtusifolia means "blunt-leaved". This peperomia is easily propagated via leaf-cuttings, and is able to regenerate after completely dying back to the stem. Like other peperomias, the Obtusifolia is non-toxic, making it safe to keep around your furry friends.

We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
