Peperomia caperata 'Cuito', also known as Radiator Plant, is a variety of Peperomia caperata that stands out for its compact growth habit and striking, deeply ribbed leaves. Like other Peperomia, it's native to tropical regions of the world, specifically South America, where it grows in the understory of the rainforest.

The plant's leaves are heart-shaped and feature a rich, dark red color with deeply defined ridges, giving the foliage a textured, almost corrugated look. The surface of the leaves has a subtle sheen, adding to the plant's overall attractiveness. The plant is compact, typically growing to about 8 inches tall, making it perfect for desk or tabletop use.

In terms of care, here are some general guidelines for Peperomia caperata 'Cuito':

Light: This plant prefers moderate to bright indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while low light conditions can lead to leggy growth.

Water: Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil feel dry to the touch. Peperomias do not like to be overwatered and can be susceptible to root rot if left in waterlogged soil.

Humidity: Peperomia caperata 'Cuito' likes moderate to high humidity, but it's quite adaptable and can tolerate average home humidity levels.

Temperature: Ideal temperatures for this plant range from 65-75°F (18-24°C), but it can tolerate a slightly wider range as long as it's kept away from drafts or sudden temperature changes.

Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix. A good option is a mixture of peat moss and perlite or a commercial potting mix labeled for succulents, as this will provide adequate drainage.

Fertilizer: Feed the plant every two weeks during the growing season (Spring-Summer) with a balanced houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. No need to fertilize in the winter.

Repotting: Peperomia caperata 'Cuito' has a small root system and doesn't need frequent repotting. You may repot when the plant outgrows its pot, which is usually every 2-3 years.

Pruning: You can prune this plant to control its size or remove any yellowing or damaged leaves.

Propagation: Peperomia caperata 'Cuito' can be propagated through leaf cuttings or by division.

Overall, Peperomia caperata 'Cuito' is a relatively easy plant to care for and can be a beautiful addition to your indoor plant collection. Its compact size and attractive foliage make it a great choice for adding a bit of greenery to desks, shelves, or other small spaces.
