|These evergreen, sometimes succulent houseplants may be either rosette-forming or erect with trailing stems. Though peperomia produce greenish- white, panicle-like flower spikes, they are grown primarily for their foliage. In warm, sub-tropical or tropical areas, these plants maybe grown outside as a ground cover. Indoors, they require bright indirect light, but do tolerate low light. Water moderately during summer and sparingly during winter with water that is room temperature. Fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer. Though you hear that these plants favor daily misting, it is not necessary, especially if room is not overly dry. These plants like to be a little pot bound. Outdoors, grow in well-drained soil in partial shade.
Pepromia nivalis is creeping or upright and has fleshy stems containing anise-scented sap. Boat-shaped, fleshy, brilliant green leaves, white or white-flushed pink below, are densely borne at the ends of the stems. 4 to 6 inches tall, indefinite width.
