Peperomia columella is commonly known as columnar peperomia. A native of Peru and belonging to the Piperaceae family, this houseplant has snake-like shoots. The leaves are green & fleshy and look like a horseshoe. The foliage almost hides the stems of the succulent. In its initial years, the plant grows upright but later starts to curl like a pendant with a total length of 8 inches. The flowers bloom in spring but that’s quite occasional. The light green blooms are as peculiar as they are tail-like. This winter-dormant plant is slow-growing and requires filtered sunlight for happy growth.
