Peperomia Amigo Marcello is a compact, small perennial epiphyte growing on rotten wood, which make them a great candidate for any arrangement as filler. As other Peperomias, it is easy to care for as a houseplant.
Peperomia is one of the two large genera of the family Piperaceae. Most of them are compact, small perennial epiphytes growing on rotten wood. More than 1500 species have been recorded, occurring in all tropical and subtropical regions of the world, though concentrated in Central America and northern South America. These tropical perennials are grown for their ornamental foliage. They are compact and usually do not exceed 12 inches (30 cm) in height.
