Peperomia scandens (Hanging Peperomia) is a low-growing groundcover, reaching a maximum height of 2 feet. Easy to care for, it makes an ideal houseplant for beginners. This plant thrives best in full sun or semi-shade outdoors, or in a bright spot indoors, but can tolerate moderate shade. For best results, water regularly, allowing the soil to dry out about halfway between waterings. In colder regions, the plant should be grown in a pot, as it is sensitive to frost.

The small plant is a slow-growing perennial, reaching an approximate height of 2-5 feet with its trailing stems. Its foliage is made up of dark green, glossy leaves resembling those of Heartleaf philodendron. This plant is a great choice for adding an exotic touch to your home and is grown in USDA Zone 10-11.

Peperomia sp.

Radiator Plant
Family: Piperaceae
USDA Plant Hardiness MapGroundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall plant 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliage

About a thousand species of Peperomias have been described, mainly from South America although a few (17) are found in Africa. Many of these plants are perennial epiphytes growing on rotten logs and they have thick stems and fleshy leaves, some with leaf windows. Most Peperomias have tiny flowers which are packed into a characteristic greenish or brown conical spike like an inverted catkin. A few species have more attractive flowers such as the white scented clusters of spikes produced by P. fraseri.

Peperomias are best cultivated in a light, well drained compost containing plenty of humus and do well in shallow containers. Coming from tropical rain-forest habitats, they love warm humid conditions and most need a minimum temperature of 50 - 55°F. However, the stems and foliage can be prone to rotting and Peperomias should be watered sparingly from below (especially in winter) using soft water, avoiding wetting the crown of the plant.

This small ornamental tree with a straight trunk produces a mass of large, 3-4" white flowers resembling little birds. Its lower branches create a floral canopy from November to June. Tolerates flooding. The flower is large and distinctively curved. Vertical pods, located near the flowers, can contain up to 20 seeds. The tender leaves, green fruit, and flowers are eaten alone as a vegetable or mixed into curries or salads. Flowers may be dipped in batter and fried in butter. Tender portions serve as cattle fodder. Ripe pods apparently are not eaten. The inner bark can serve as fiber and the white, soft wood not too durable, can be used for cork. The wood is used, like bamboo, in Asian construction. The tree is grown as an ornamental shade tree, and for reforestation. Bark, leaves, gums, and flowers are considered medicinal. In Java, the tree is extensively used as a pulp source. A gum resembling kino (called katurai), fresh when red, nearly black after exposure, exudes from wounds. This astringent gum is partially soluble in water and in alcohol, but applied to fishing cord, it makes it more durable. Pepper vines (Piper nigrum) are sometimes grown on and in the shade of the agati. Dried and powdered bark is used as a cosmetic in Java. An aqueous extract of bark is said to be toxic to cockroaches.
