General Information and Care: Peperomia emarginella is a widely distributed species in Central America. This clone is one that has been in the US for a very long time, and in our collection for almost 10 years. At that time, location data was not as carefully tracked as it is now and this was only sold as P. emarginella. This is one of the smallest Peperomia sp. that we offer and is a wonderful terrarium plant. It enjoys being moist to wet, as well as medium to high light. This is a fantastic choice for an epiphyte to help fill in a branch area. Additionally, this species will drape beautifully from driftwood as it grows over it and hangs down. This species is also more prone to the double leaves and more obvious white venation than some of the other clones that Glass Box Tropicals offers.
