Piper the Peperomia
Piper the Peperomia may be small, but she is mighty! Don’t let her size fool you–she can be quite the diva at times, and you really never know what mood she will be in. For the most part, she hates attention and actually likes to be left on her own.
All About Piper
Place of Birth: Jungles of the Amazon (and now our lush greenhouse)
Origin: Piper has a HUGE family of over 500 uncles, aunts and cousins with traces to the original spice girl, Pepper! Most of them still reside in the jungles, but many have made their way to the States.
Favorite Place to Hang: in her room binge-watching her favorite Netflix shows or
(Real talk: Piper is a medium to high light plant. She does best in a bright location with mostly indirect light. This can be either near a north or eastern-facing window or 5-10 feet away from a south or west facing window.
If you do not know what way your windows face, take your phone and use the compass app! Point it at the area you would like to place Piper. Please note, obstructions likes trees or buildings outside, can cause a considerable decrease in the available sunlight.
Favorite Drink: Fiji water
Favorite Food: popcorn
Best Friends: Fred the Snake Plant & Callie the Calathea
Fun Fact: Piper is a neat freak just like Fred! She is constantly cleaning up the house to make sure it’s in perfect condition.
All throughout high school, Piper was given ridiculous nicknames like: creeping buttons, dwarf pepper, crocodile tears, watermelon plant or rat’s ear. We never really could find out why she was being called these names (probably because she likes to keep to herself) but Piper never it get to her because she didn’t want to deal with the drama.
