This peperomia is easily propagated via leaf-cuttings, and is able to regenerate after completely dying back to the stem. Like other peperomias, the Obtusifolia is non-toxic, making it safe to keep around your furry friends. Under ideal conditions, it will flower indoors, producing narrow white spikes.
