|Peperomia polybotrya 'Raindrop" --Everywhere.|
Right now, there are so few Peperomia polybotrya ‘Raindrops’ that nobody even knows that they exist.
But what if tissue culture propagation is successful such that an infinite supply suddenly becomes available. It might happen.
‘Nothing is sold unless it has a name and a use’
I want the name to be Peperomia ‘Raindrop’. The dominate player in the market will influence the name and what becomes accepted through common use.
The leading ‘use’ for ‘Raindrop’ will be as a low light houseplant. It is sturdy and has shiny leaves. It should be able to take its place by other houseplant standards like Pothos, Philodendron or Ferns.
If you follow the Law of Focus, then one use---- houseplant----should be enough.
However, the most dominate segment of the horticulture industry is Spring Garden and Patio Plants. And more and more gardens are in the shade.
What if we made a planter with ‘Raindrops’ and Begonias?
If Peperomia ‘Raindrop’ could get in the Spring market, we will need a lot of them.
