“Peperomia” Genus

Peperomia genus featured image

This genus belongs to the family Pipericeae where it happens to be one of the two genera. It has over 1000 known species and it is distributed in all tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. The large number of species and their wide distribution necessitates a wide range of adaptations to enable plants survive in their various environments. Some species are epiphytes that grow on other plants, others are adapted to grow on rocks, and others are adapted to survive in the arid and semi-arid regions through various water storage abilities.

It is a compact genus where most members don’t grow beyond twelve inches. Their leaves are thick and fleshy, which is typical of succulents. They have a waxy surface. These leaves are usually ovoid in shape, and they are also characterized by leafstalks and leaf blades. Some in the genus have heart and lance-shaped leaves. Leaf size varies; it can be between one and four inches long.  

Leaf color varies from solid green to stripped. Also, they may be boarded with pale green, red, or gray. Some in the genus are deciduous, their leaves fall off in dry, cold seasons, but they have underground tubers that store water, enabling them to survive the season. Their flowers are inconspicuous.
