   This member of the Peperomiaceae family was given this name by Karl Sigismund Kunth in 1815. It is found in northern Peru, growing in the rich soil in rock cracks, but will require a rather drained soil in culture.  Quite some water and little to some sun. The caudex can grow to four and a half centimetre or more while the leaves up to five centimetre. The flowers are greenish white.
