Mitre 10 New Zealand is debuting this stunning, new-release green beauty, grown from Dutch breeding stock right here in Aotearoa by Zealandia Horticulture.
Lustrous rippled ‘moonlight’ foliage with iridescent variegation make this wee gem a covetable addition to any urban jungle or country retreat. It will grow to around 20-30cm (not including flower spikes).
Peperomia Moonlight is the first plant in over 15 years over which Zealandia has established a plant variety right (PVR). PVR is an intellectual property right designed to encourage growers to develop and disseminate new plant varieties. It also protects the new plant from being propagated and sold on the ‘black market’ by unauthorised sellers. Mitre 10 has secured exclusive rights to the first release of this new plant.
Good news for the less green-thumbed among us, Peperomia Moonlight is easy to care for. It enjoys a bright room with indirect sunlight, tolerates shade and will even thrive under fluorescent lights, ideal for lushing up the office too.
And even better news for those of us still consciously conserving water… Peperomia don't like to be over-watered. They store water in their leaves, making them drought-resistant too. Win.
