The Pilea Raindrop is one of around 500 varieties of the Peperomia plant. These easy to care for plants have unsurprisingly become incredibly popular, due to their ability to thrive on a little 'accidental' neglect! Derived from the Greek word for pepper, you might be surprised to hear that this leafy plant is related to the pepper. With it's bright green glossy leaves, this plant makes a lovely leafy addition to your home.
To keep your Raindrop Peperomia happy, you won't need to fret too much. It enjoys warmth and indirect light, but can also cope with a little shade. It only needs watering occasionally, once it's soil has completely dried out - as those gorgeous green succulent leaves store water. Be careful not to overwater, especially in the winter months.
