Crinkly heart-shaped leaves identify this peperomia as a member of the caperata family but is it different from Schumi Red?
Available in storeClose
The identification of house plants can be challenging, especially when names are trademarked, so even though a plant may be identical to another in looks and growth, it may go by a different name. Peperomia 'Raisinet' appears to have the same qualities of Peperomia 'Schumi Red,' with red to burgundy heart-shaped crinkly leaves growing in a mound about a foot tall and wide. Whether the same plant or not, this little specimen will add color and textural interest to indoor planters, and partners well with succulent-like plants, as both require higher lighting and deep but infrequent watering for maximum growth. Peperomia are pet-friendly, but even a crinkly leafed plant such as 'Raisinet' will suffer if curious pets decide to sample its leaves.
