About This Product

Peperomia obtusifolia variegata (also known as Baby Rubber Plant) is a member of the Peperaceae family of plants and is native to South America. It has a straight, upright growth and fat, leathery leaves that give this plant a succulent-like look. The leaves are round and variegated green and white. The stem can get pretty substantial in size and is strong enough to hold the weight of all those heavy leaves. The Peperomia obtusifolia variegate can reach up to 12” tall and keeps a nice round shape as it grows. Plant in a well drained soil and water when the top inch of soil is dry. Give plenty of bright, indirect light.

USDA Hardiness Zone 12

  This is a “Grower's Choice” plant which means we choose the plant for you. Each order will include one (1) Peperomia obtusifolia species available in stock. Plants may differ in color and appearance from the plant pictured.  

Container Gardens/Terrariums/Houseplant:

Peperomia obtusifolia variegate does well in a pot as a houseplant. It prefers higher humidity so a saucer with pebbles and water under the pot will help generate a more humid environment around the plant. Place in bright, indirect light for best color.

Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariums, container garden soils, drainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor gardening needs.

Vivariums/Animal Terrariums:

Although this plant can reach heights of 12”, it is suitable for use as a background plant in a humid vivarium/terrarium if large enough. It has moderate light needs for best color. Plant in a well drained location of the tank to prevent rot.

As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with declorinated water before placing them in their final home. Plants from Josh’s Frogs are specifically grown to be safe for use with animals. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance. 


The plant pictured is in a 4" pot.

Beautiful Healthy Plant

Arrived very well packaged in perfect condition. Is even more full and lush than I was expecting and has adjusted nicely to my home. Not a bit of damage during shipping. Very impressed. I have already placed another order.
