The wide diversity of leaf shapes, colour and plant structure makes Peperomia a versatile houseplant which also purify the air.
Peperomia is considered lucky in Brazil. It is given there as a reassuring gift that says: “Everything will be all right.” The name is derived from the Greek ‘peperi’ meaning 'pepper' and ‘homoios’, which means 'resembling’.
As a houseplant you need to do virtually nothing for it; ‘loving neglect’ is the best policy. That makes Peperomia very suitable as an entry level plant for people whose fingers are not particularly green.
