Peperomia rubella is a great, small-leaved vine that is a Jamaican native and fairly uncommon. It features prominently scarlet red stems and leaf undersides. The top of the leaves is green with a unique pattern.
Both stems and leaves of Peperomia plant are moderately fuzzy, but it still tolerates high humidity well. In general, keep in moist soil and moderate to high but preferably indirect lighting for best results. It will grow upright until about 2-4”, where it will then fall to sprawl out as a vine. Peperomia rubella is a great plant for terrariums and container gardens. It can hold up in the humid environment of a terrarium and also does well exposed to normal household humidity levels. It looks great in a hanging basket and can be kept outdoors as long as the temperatures remain around 70 F. Peperomia rubella is a non-climbing vine that makes a great foreground plant, where it will form a dense carpet. If planted on the background, it will drape to form a nice wall of red color from exposing its red leaf undersides.
