Planting & Care
Most Peperomia species can be relatively easily propagated from leaf cuttings, similar to the way African violets are propagated. Remove large leaves with their stalks (petioles) and bury in seedling starting soil. Use of a rooting hormone can increase odds of success. Place the cutting in a warm, bright place until new growth emerges.
Sunlight: Peperomia do well in light to moderate light, such as found in a northern or east-facing window. They can be easily grown under fluorescent lights.
Soil: A loose, well-drained, very rich potting mix.
Water: Keep the soil moist during the growing season and provide relatively high humidity through spraying or by setting the pot in a gravel tray.
Temprature: Average. Peperomia do well in the relatively cool environment of most homes (although they dislike the dry). Aim for 65°F to 75°F.
Fertilizer: Fertilize biweekly during the growing season with a diluted liquid fertilizer or use controlled-release fertilizer pellets at the beginning of the growing season.
- If your peperomia plants are wilting, in spite of regular watering, the plant is likely not getting enough oxygen to the roots.
- The Peperomia houseplant is an attractive addition to a desk, a table or as a member of your houseplant collection.
- Peperomia care is not difficult and Peperomia plants have a compact form that lets them occupy a small space wherever you choose to place them.
