Peperomia ferreyrae
Common Name: Happy Bean Family: Piperaceae (The Pepper Family)

Peperomia ferreyrae, often called happy bean or pincushion peperomia, is a cute, textural, succulent houseplant with long, pointed, bright green leaves with the edges folded up creating a channel lengthwise down the middle. It grows as an epiphyte in its native South American but also grows well as a potted plant and forms a nice little bush with time. It will appreciate more water than other succulents.
