Lars, the Peperomia metallica var. colombiana
Meet Lars. You can always spot him haunting the crowd at music memorabilia auctions. An avid heavy metal fan, Lars wears his vintage concert tee shirts like badges of honor. He collects old backstage passes, concert programs, promotional photos. Really, autographed anything. He doesn’t mind the prices when it comes to iconic names from the early 1980s. He refers to his plectrum collection with barely hidden glee, his enthusiasm embodying the very spirit of Metal collecting.
We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.
This plant ships as a 1″ fully rooted starter plant, as shown in the second photo. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
If you order multiple plants, we put them together in one pot so they stay moist and insulated. If you think we haven’t sent the full order, please take out the plants from the pot first to count them.
**Winter Shipping** Our plants are considered tropical and cannot survive for extended periods in temperatures below 40° F. Even if it’s warm where you are, remember that these plants are shipping from Northern Colorado! We require that you order a heat pack to add to your shipping box, this will help protect your plants from cold and frost. We will activate it as soon as it ships and it heats for 72+hours. Please understand we will not be responsible at all for damage due to cold weather if a heat pack is not added to the order. So, show your plants some love and get them a warming buddy!
(One heat pack is sufficient for a whole order)
