Peperomia turboensis is one of the more striking terrarium plants. The leaves are quite striking with an almost glittery appearance under the right lighting conditions. This species prefers very moist soil along with a high humidity environment for the leaves to be in. The leaves are held up with petioles that can get up to about 5” in length. The leaves themselves can get up to about 3” in diameter. They are green to dark green to almost maroon with beautiful silver markings. It should be noted that typically this species does best when grown terrestrially, though it can also be grown epiphytically but care must be taken as it can get so large that it will fall/break itself off from its’ mount.
