Plant Health
Overwatering is the #1 peperomia killer. Like other peperomias, the Red Twist likes to hold moisture in its leaves, which makes it semi-drought tolerant. If the plant is overwatered it can rupture the cell walls of the leaves or cause root rot. A sign that a plant has been overwatered is leaves that are turning black and dropping. When in doubt, it’s better to underwater than overwater.
Special Features
Red Twist Peperomia are distinguished by their unique, bicolour leaves that are emerald green on top and bright crimson underneath.
