Peperomia make good indoor plants. As houseplants they are low maintenance, with fleshy leaves that help them to retain water. There are more than 1,500 types of peperomia – the main attraction is their foliage, with a wide choice of leaf shape, texture and colour, from Peperomia argyreia with leaves that resemble the rind of a watermelon, to the large, glossy leaves of Peperomia obtusifolia, and the tiny patterned leaves of Peperomia prostrata.

One of the main things to consider when taking care of a peperomia plant is its position. These plants come from tropical jungles, where some species grow on trees and others on the jungle floor. This means that their ideal position is one where they get bright, indirect light. They don't need or enjoy direct sun.
