About the plant:
Peperomia, or pepper plant, is a plant from the pepper family (yes, this includes black pepper). Peperomia caperata can also be found under the English name emerald ripple peperomia, in the Czech translation emerald wavy pepper. The species carperata Rosso is similar to the species Brasilia, as it also has wrinkled green leaves, sharply red below, but denser. It also reaches a slightly smaller height. It has long flowers that resemble tails.
They are most naturally found in South and Central America, but a few species can also be found in Africa. More than 1,500 species have been recorded in tropical and subtropical regions. It is an epiphyte that is often found growing on rotting wood. Although their shape, size and colors differ, in most cases it is an undemanding shrub-like plant. Its narrow and thin flower grows in the form of a spike. It is yellow in color and looks like a wax candle. The leaves are fleshy and smooth, and can be heart- or spear-shaped.
