Product Description

Peperomia Obtusifolia, commonly known as the Baby Rubberplant, is a charming and versatile houseplant cherished for its glossy, succulent-like leaves and compact growth habit. Belonging to the Piperaceae family, this evergreen perennial is native to Central and South America, where it thrives in the warm, tropical climates of countries like Brazil and Mexico.

The Baby Rubber plant earns its name from the thick, fleshy leaves that resemble those of rubber plants (Ficus elastica), although they are unrelated. Its compact growth habit and tolerance to various indoor conditions make it a popular choice for both beginner and experienced indoor gardeners.


Planting Instructions

  • A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and coarse sand works well for Baby Rubber plants.
  • Opt for a container that provides ample space for the plant’s root system but avoid oversized pots, as Baby Rubber plants prefer slightly snugger quarters.
  • Fill the bottom of the pot with a layer of small stones or broken pottery to improve drainage.
  • Place a layer of the prepared potting mix on top, leaving enough space for the plant’s root ball.
  • Gently remove the Baby Rubber plant from its nursery container, taking care not to damage the roots.
  • Position the plant in the center of the pot and fill in the remaining space with the potting mix, pressing down lightly to secure the plant.
  • Ensure the soil line remains at the same level as the top of the root ball.


Plant Care

  • Baby Rubber plants prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves.
  • Maintain indoor temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Avoid sudden temperature fluctuations and cold drafts.
  • Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch.
  • Ensure adequate drainage to prevent waterlogging, as Baby Rubber plants are susceptible to root rot.
  • Repot Baby Rubber plants every 1-2 years in a slightly larger pot with fresh potting mix.
