Add a bold dose of color and texture to your home or office with Schumi Red Peperomia. Though it's a small houseplant well suited to windowsills, desks, and tabletops, it has a distinct look that stands apart from other indoor plant. Each leaf has a rippled, almost corrugated texture, and bears a rich reddish-purple color that's often deeper on the leaf underside. In bright light, you might notice the leaves have a sparkly or metallic appearance. While it can tolerate lowish light levels, it thrives in areas of your home that are on the brighter side. 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.
