Formerly called Peperomia Puteolata, its almond-shaped leaves are variegated with alternating stripes of dark and light green, much like the rind of a watermelon. The leaves emerge in whirls of threes and fours, and stand in striking contrast to the upright, reddish stems. Ultimately growing 16" or longer, Parallel Peperomia is great for tabletop or hanging planters. It's easy to propagate from stem tip cuttings, and periodic pruning encourages a bushy habit.
