Peperomia obtusifolia, the baby rubberplant or pepper face, is a species of flowering plant in the family Piperaceae, native to Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean. The specific epithet obtusifolia means "blunt-leaved".
Peperomia obtusifolia is one of the most impressive variegated forms of the Peperomia group. The leaf blades are wonderfully adorned in various hues of green, ivory or cream and rosy-pink, and are beautifully bordered in red to show off their beauty. Each obovate and concave leaf is uniquely patterned. Peperomia clusiifolia 'Jellie' with lighter shades if not located in bright/filtered sunlight. The good news is this smallish plant is still thriving well in our garden slightly more than a year later, though foliage is not that vibrant as located at the porch that’s not receiving much sunshine. Its green counterpart, Peperomia clusiifolia has rather large spoon-like dark-green leaves that are slightly concave in the centre and have a characteristic red margin.
