Emerald Ripple Peperomia
Peperomia caperata or Emerald Ripple Peperomia. Heart-shaped richly veined ruffled dark green leaves. The plant’s genus name is a combination of two Greek words, peperi means pepper and homoios means resembling. These plants look like and are related to Piper nigrum, which is black pepper. The specific species ‘caperata’ refers to the plant’s wrinkled leaf texture. Compact structure makes the plant an ideal houseplant.
