Peperomia Obtusifolia Properties:-
- Wide, dark green leaf interiors characterize the leaves and root system of this Peperomia Obtusifolia plant, and the entire plant is dormant during part of the year. The leaves are often damp and the plant exhibits red spidery veins. As the plant grows upward, new shoots appear along the stems while the older growth just begins to fade. There is no evidence to suggest that the variegation occurs as the plant grows upward or that there is a pattern to the pattern of the colour variegation.
- The shoots of the Peperomia Obtusifolia plant are commonly referred to as “Pommes Frites” or “little bread”. The appearance of the leaves and the development of the new shoots depend on the amount of sunlight that is available during the season when the plants are growing. During the winter, the leaves will turn yellow and the plant will stop growing altogether. In springtime, new shoots begin to develop and the overall growth pattern of the plant alters dramatically. This can result in an abundance of small blooms on the surface of the leaves and small fruit-like leaves or flowers that grow close to the base.
- As long as there is ample rainfall, the soil is fairly dry and Phosphorous levels in the soil are high. Winter periods tend to dry out the soil, and this can cause stress on the root system, so it is important to provide ample moisture. The leaves will remain green and healthy even through long periods of drought, but they will wilt in hot temperatures and become dull looking. This type of foliage is typically found in south and central areas of the United States.
- If you live in a part of the country that has a period of very dry weather, there is a good chance that the leaves on the Peperomia Obtusifolia plant will turn yellow and die. This is usually a symptom of too much water being supplied to the plant, so if there is not enough humidity in the air the foliage will soon turn colours similar to hay. You may also find that the foliage will become mottled from too much sun exposure. Too much sun is another common problem for this plant. It will tolerate moderate amounts of humidity, up to about half of the water normally contained in a pail.
- The underside of the leaves may curl up as the plant goes through its dormant stage. This is a sign that the root system is becoming weak due to lack of water. It will grow tall and reach a maximum height of three to four feet. The leaves will be dark green and the trunk will be lean and rigid. The trunk will start to thicken towards the base and this is when the tree starts to get drier. It will stop growing after the first bloom has occurred.
- Repotting of the Peperomia Obtusifolia plant should be done when the soil is moist but not soggy. You can use a standard garden fork or you can use your hand to gently coax the stem towards the pot. Once it is in it you can remove the leaf stem cuttings and place them into the pot. This should be done one leaf at a time and if you have more than one leaved stem you may want to repot them all at once.
