    • Peperomia caperata Frost is yet another tropical beauty in the Piperaceae family. This plant has a similar foliage color pattern and sometimes is mistaken for Peperomia Watermelon. However, Frost has thicker leaves with more prominent green veins and has an upright growing habit while Watermelon has thinner leaves and grows more in width.

      Peperomia Frost is also a compact slow growers. This plant can take several years to reach its full height of around 12 inches. With its showy, silvery stunning foliage, Peperomia Frost can brighten up any living space.

      Peperomia Frost produces unscented, green stems that bear greenish-brown small flowers. These flower stems can be removed, so your plant can focus its energy on developing bushier foliage. This plant, as well as other Peperomia species, can purify the indoor air and reduces common airborne toxins.

    • Peperomia Frost grows best in medium to bright, indirect light, and it does not tolerate low light conditions. This plant should be protected from intense, direct sunlight.

      This plant is sensitive to both overwatering and underwatering. You should keep your plant slightly moist but not soaked. Check the soil weekly and only water when the topsoil is dry to the touch. Drain well after each watering.

       Frost loves rich, well-draining soils that can retain some moisture. You can add some perlite to your general houseplant potting soil to increase drainage and aeration.

       Frost thrives in normal room temperatures (between 65°F-80°F) and humidity (40-50%). You can mist your plant and use a humidifier when the environment is too dry (humidity level falls below 40%).

      This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

      *** 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.
