I think I have to admit that I have too many plants. I just purchased peperomia graveolens. I had it years ago and killed it. I was so excited when I found it at Lowes 2 weeks ago . They only had one. This Peperomia is not popular for some reason online or in the stores.

I went outside to take a pic of it when I saw this post and I cannot find it. I have so many pots on the patio I am sure it is there somewhere but for the life of me I cannot find the plant. *Blush*

OOooh, I'm glad I'm not the only one that happens to! I move plants around so much, I have a lot of those moment. And sometimes I "find" things I forgot I had. I hope yours didn't blow away or get eaten, just misplaced! Maybe it's just shy.

I'd love to find that graveolens too! I haven't shown all of mine yet but that's not one of them. I've never seen one in person.

What's weird is that I haven't seen a "boring old" P. obtusifolia to buy over the past few yrs. Prob just bad timing since I so rarely go where plants are sold.

There are three things that could have happened.

1. It is lost among the jungle out there (my hope)
2. Something ate it (very possible because something ate a new Jade I purchased this yr)
3. It ran away because I have killed every peperonia I have every purchased.(Fantasy but I believe my plants have feelings) Rolling on the floor laughing

I see the P. obtusifolia all the time at the florist/nursery place I go to occasionally. They sell garden plants but their biggest business is the Florist side and they sell the extra plants that they do not use in their combo pots that they send on the florist side. I thing P. obtusifolia is used as a staple/filler in their pots.

Tiffany, you have a nice collection! I especially like the P.rotundifolia Lovey dubby

Here's my variegated Peperomia Scandens. It grows anywhere, sun, shade, inside, outside, not picky at all. Love this one. I started out with a few pieces in other pots, just to add some interest, and they've grown so much I've had to give them their own pots. They look particularly nice cascading out of a hanging basket.

Cinta, I am chuckling (in understanding) over your lost plant

I've had plain green obtusifolia, green and white, and the tricolor one with more pointed leaves. Good plants but the tricolor is really not pretty to me. I think I gave them away when I got bored. I don't think I could have killed them if I tried.

Awww, I love tricolor Pep. Here's one that has spent the summer in more sun.
Thumb of 2016-09-28/purpleinopp/5f7386

Here's one behind it that's been in the shadows of other plants. Its' leaves are bigger & darker.
Thumb of 2016-09-28/purpleinopp/2752a6

P. dolabriformis. When I got this its' leaves were a fatter, shorter shape. It's been propagated into several individuals. I think this is the biggest one that the cuttings came from.

Mystery solved......

I have been looking for the plant every day when I went out. I found one leaf in a corner and no pot. I started to believe I was right it ran away. But I was hoping I was mistaken. I kept looking. Today I saw something that looked familiar laying under the bird feeder on the patio about 30ft from where I found the leaf. It was without a pot and I could see soil and a stem.

I guess a animal dragged it and was using it as a snack this is all that is left. I do not know if I can root the leaves. But will try.

Every time this thread pops up in the "recent threads" on my home page, I read it as "Pepperoni pizza." I decided that I better look at the thread so maybe I'd stop misreading the title and making myself hungry. Hilarious!

Very pretty Peperomias! Lovey dubby

Ah, Cinta, that's sad. It looks like some critter thought your Peperomia was pepperoni pizza, too. Sad

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing me too. I kept reading it as pizza. I think whatever ate this plant thought it was pizza that is for sure.

I have almost gotten to the point that I no longer get heart broken when once again I loose a plant to animal murder. I just console myself by purchasing 5 more plants. I do not know if this is rational.

For years I gardened in a typical suburban area. I got it in my head I wanted to live on a couple acres. I did not factor in that would include room for more wildlife. Especially when I only moved 15 min from my old home. I went from 2 deer to 40 deer, one groundhog to 30 and and and....... *Blush*

Cinta, I had the same idea that you did. When we moved to the suburbs, we planted several oak trees on our couple of acres, but did not factor in that the squirrels would arrive. It seems that every year they increase and move closer and closer to the house. And lets not talk about the deer. I believe they sleep on the property. Blinking And oh, the rabbits . . . Practically every time I go out to water my plants outdoors, one or two of them will spring out from among them. Rolling my eyes.

I couldn't believe it one fall when I planted some bulbs in a large pot Lasagna style (my 1st and only try). That spring I waited for my flowers, but there were very few. I poked around and saw a round hole in the pot, but didn't think too much about it. That summer I emptied the pot and found very few bulbs. Some critter had a feast over the winter and ate nearly all of them. Grumbling

OK back to pepperomias. I need to see what I have a post a photo or two. I did not dare put them outside, as they would be some pests happy meal for sure. Grumbling
