peperomia japonica in wabi kusa?

Not sure where to post this on new forum layout. Putting together a wabi kusa soon (emmersed) and I had read a blurb online that Peperomias were good vivarium plants. Has anyone used it in a wabi kusa? Any thoughts on using it?
Thanks. Koi

My initial thought is No.
Peperomias in general need very good aeration around their roots. They rot very easily.
While they may work in a vivarium with just a trickle of water or mist, I do not think they are going to do well in standing water.

I'd asked about peperomia before when I started out and was also told that it was not a riparium/wet root viable plant.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

My understanding of Perperormia sp is that they have very similar characteristics to succulents and don't need much in regards to water. As mentioned a little misting or splash from water trickle at most.

Stock lightly and carry a big filter. - I don't have aquariums. I have ecosystems in a glass box. - Hygrophilaholic and hoarder of Anubias.

It would depend where you wanted to place the peperomia and what species. On higher ground started on very moist sphagnum Peperomia emarginella would grow well and once it starts growing will spread and probably will not care if it dangles into the water a little. There are so many new rare species of peperomia from South America coming into the hobby it's definitely worth a shot. They grow in very wet spots in my vivarium just fine and will grow on a rock super well. Peperomia emarginella is a tiny ground cover type too.
