Peperomia Orba Teardrop 'Pixie Lime' Plant
This semi-succulent plant is an amazing beginner houseplant. It tolerates a range of environments and has stunning growth that is lime green in color, with new growth always popping up. You can sometimes see dark veins on the leaves too, as it matures and gets lots of light.
The peperomia family is great for beginning plant lovers due to their easy watering schedule and no need for humidity or lighting constraints. In brighter light, the leaves will become more lime-colored, and in darker lighting or indoors, it will be darker.
Available in the following packaging based on your preference:
- Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 2" planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
- Clive Planter - This plant comes packaged in a white square porcelain planter pot almost 4" ready for your home or office space with a bamboo tray to catch drips when watered.
- Olympia Planter - Marble-looking grey and white ceramic planter raised on a metal stand. Approximately 4” opening with drainage hole.
