Meet the incredibly rare piper parmatum! This is an incredibly unique and rare plant with very little information out there on it. Because it has a similar growth habit to a peperomia and can sometimes be mislabeled as one. The Piper parmatum has oval-shaped leaves with consistent ridges and a fuzzy underside. They seem to have a similar growth habit to the Peperomia rosso with wider spreading foliage. While little information is available for this awesome looking plant, we have found they do well in bright indirect light, medium to high humidity and moderately moist soil.

Like many tropical indoor plants, this plant likes above-average humidity. In especially dry air, the leaf edges or leaf tips may turn brown. Remedy this by supplying the plant with more humidity. It's also helpful to keep this plant away from drafts of hot or cold air.
