Add a bold dose of colour and texture to your home or office with Schumi Red Peperomia. Schumi Red Peperomia is a fabulous small houseplant ideal for adding colour to your desk or tabletop. It shows off shield-shaped leaves that are a rich reddish-purple colour. They’re also fantastically textured and almost corrugated in appearance, making it fun to view them up close. Comes in a 6in. ceramic pot. 

As with all living things, no two plants are alike, therefore may not be exactly as shown. There will be some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. May be in stages of flowering upon purchase.

Peperomia Caperata 'Schumi Red'

  • Light
    Schumi Red Peperomia holds up well in low to average light levels but truly thrives in medium to bright  (but indirect) light. It does equally well under natural light as artificial light. Like many understory houseplants, take care not to expose it to much direct afternoon sun, particularly in Southern climates and hot-summer areas. Direct sun can cause unsightly sunburn, which appears as bleached patching on the leaves. 

    Water Peperomia Schumi Red when the top couple of inches of the potting mix start to feel dry to the touch. This peperomia holds water in its fleshy stems, so it can tolerate drying out a bit if necessary. Avoid overwatering, which can cause the roots to suffocate, die, and rot away. It's better to keep this small houseplant too dry than too wet.

    Peperomia caperata Schumi Red doesn’t require regular feedings, but you can fertilize in spring or summer. Use a fertilizer formulated for houseplants or container plants. Follow the directions on the product packaging, and never use more fertilizer (in terms of quantity or frequency) than the instructions on the product’s packaging recommend.

    This variety is grown for ornamental use and is not intended for human or animal consumption. We advise keeping it out of reach from children or pets that may nibble.
