  •   Peperomia Golden Gate, or Peperomia Obtusifoliaone or Baby Rubber plant, is a wonderful houseplant for beginners, as it is resilient and very easy to care for. Golden Gate is a bushy plant with thick red stems and waxy leaves in emerald green and golden yellow.

    Native to Florida, Mexico, and the Caribbean, this is a slow-growing plant and can reach up to 12 inches. Despite its small size, Peperomia Golden Gate scores a spot on the top list of air-purifying houseplants, as it is very effective in cleaning indoor air.

    Its compact, upright-spreading nature and low light demand make it perfect for indoor and shady spots. Peperomia obtusifolia is a perfect adornment for any decor style.

    Golden Gate blooms spikes of white flowers during the growing season (Spring/Summer).

  • Peperomias prefer moderate light conditions, can grow in shady places, and do well under fluorescent lights. Avoid scorching direct sunlight.

    This plant is mildly drought-tolerant and needs watering once a week in the summer. Water less in the winter (once every 10-14 days). Do not water the foliage.

    This plant loves well-drained, porous potting soil that can retain some moisture.

    Ideal temperature: 60 to 75 °F( 16 to 24 °C). Save the plant from cold winds, drifts, and temperatures below 50 °F(10 °C). Peperomia enjoys raised humidity levels but most of the time it does just fine in normal household conditions.

    Fertilize once a month with diluted general houseplant fertilizer in spring and summer.

    This plant is non-toxic.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging:

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
