Peperomia Graveolens (pep-er-ROH-mee-uh Grav-ee-OH-lens) is an ornamental, succulent, and perennial houseplant and one of the many peperomia plant species from the family Piperaceae.
The plant is a mini shrub growing about 10” inches in height. Growing indoors plants may grow taller as they stretch for light.
Peperomia graveolens sprouts gleaming red stems in wine red color and has succulent leaves, which are also wine red shade except for the upper part of the plant where it has a transparent v-shaped ‘window’ that allows the process of photosynthesis.
The flower racemes are simple and resemble a rat’s tail.
It seems like powdery lime green in color to the naked eye, and usually grows up to 3″ inches in height.
The Peperomia graveolens flower grows on the long stems of the plant and are rather tiny. They have no real scent and are in the shade of yellowish white.
