Prefers soil to partially dry out so check about once a week. Thrives in an environment with high humidity. Water less in winter when plant is dormant.
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 the 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.
