Begonia 'Inca Flame' 6/tray
The Peperomia obtusifolia 'Obtipan Bicolor', often referred to as the Struikpeper, originated in the tropical rainforests of South America. Here, this particular species thrives in the shady undergrowth of the forest. Over time, the plant has adapted to conditions of high humidity and low sunlight – both elements characteristic of its natural habitat.
The distinguishing feature of the Peperomia obtusifolia 'Obtipan Bicolor' is the vibrant colouring of its leaves, which are a mixture of dark and light green. The leaves are broad, robust and somewhat fleshy, giving them a succulent quality. With its compact growth pattern and moderate size, reaching no more than 30 centimetres in height, this plant is an ideal house plant.
When caring for the Peperomia obtusifolia 'Obtipan Bicolor', it is important to bear in mind that it prefers a humid environment. This means the plant needs to be watered regularly. However, you should also be careful to avoid the roots becoming saturated with standing water. In terms of lighting, the plant has a preference for indirect light and should be kept away from strong, direct sunlight. Finally, it thrives at room temperature and does not tolerate cold draughts.
