General Information and Care: Peperomia sp. Ecuador - prostrata is another new species coming out of Ecuador. It was originally obtained as Pep. prostrata, though after receiving it and growing it side by side, it is clearly a different species. There are no similarities at all with the actual species. We are leaving the name for the time being until it can be properly identified.
Overall this is still a fantastic small species from the Genus. The leaves have beautiful markings in a dark purple. Easy growing overall as long as you provide constant moisture. It does not tolerate any periods of drying out. Check out the macro pictures!
