Plant Information


This Peperomia Ice Frost, also known as Caperata ‘Frost’, is grown in a medium, ~4" open top glass terrarium. This is a distinctive, compact houseplant that has striking foliage - its light green leaves are covered with a silver sheen that appears metallic or glittery. Its compact and clumping growth habit makes it an ideal choice for small spaces, desks, and tabletop displays. Its neat appearance and relatively slow growth rate contribute to its popularity as a decorative indoor plant.


Care and Maintenance


Remember that each plant is unique, so closely monitor your plant and adjust its care based on its response. By providing the right conditions, you'll be rewarded with a stunning and healthy plant that adds a touch of tropical elegance to your indoor space.


Open top terrariums

The glass terrarium and plant are shipped exactly as pictured (no assembly or planting required). These terrariums have all the proper substrate layers needed for optimal growth.


On average, your terrarium will need watering once or twice a week during spring and summer and once every week or less during the winter months. This is not a steadfast rule. A great way to tell when your terrarium will need watering is when the soil and moss layers (the top two layers) are dry. You can also take a mental note of how heavy the terrarium feels when it is dry as compared to when wet.


Be sure to water slowly and evenly. Once you see water pooling in the bottom layer of your terrarium it is time to stop watering. This bottom layer provides a reservoir for excess water and helps to avoid overwatering. It is best to err on the side of underwatering than overwatering.


Your terrarium will need a balanced liquid fertilizer that is diluted. This should be provided approximately once every other watering. With a few simple care requirements, this tropical plant can be kept in its glass terrarium for years to come.



Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, brighter light will help maintain its vibrant foliage color and patterns.



This plant can adapt to average indoor humidity levels. However, if your environment is particularly dry, consider misting the leaves.



Maintain temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations.



Feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or halt fertilization during the dormant winter months.



Remove any yellowing or damaged leaves to maintain the plant's appearance. Pinch back the stems to encourage bushier growth if desired.
