Level of Care
Easy! Just avoid direct sunlight and don't overwater.
Peperomias remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild liquid, indoor plant fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Prefers warm conditions 65-80°F. Keep away from drafty windows and air conditioners.
A peaty All-Purpose potting soil with good drainage works best.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune yellow or damaged leaves down to stem. Periodic pruning will keep plants looking bushy. To propagate, dip stem cuttings with leaves in rooting hormone and repot in a warm environment.
Yes! Peperomias are non-toxic to dogs and cats.
