The Owl Eye Peperomia (Peperomia polybotrya) is one of our new favorites in our plant collection! Closely related to the Pilea Peperomia, they sport larger leaves which have a heart shape to them. They are easy to take care of, and can be slightly more drought tolerant than other houseplants (ie. an easier plant to start learning on!).
For best care: Keep in bright light, but nothing too direct or warm, and water once a week (count slowly to 'six' while pouring water). For the best appearance, rotate the plant with each watering to get full sun exposure.
