Peperomia is a genus of more than 1000 species of small, compact perennial epiphytes growing on rotten wood, in the family Piperaceae. Peperomia is native to tropical America, with a few in Africa. It is also known as Radiator plant, Baby Rubber Plant, Emerald Ripple, or Wax Privet, and grown for its ornamental foliage, and sometimes for their flowers. Peperomia varies considerably in appearance from species to species, from threadlike, trailing stems to thick, fleshy, stout stems. The leaves, 2.5-10 cm long, are smooth and fleshy, oval with leafstalk at or near the center of the leaf blade, or heart-shaped or lance-shaped, with some species have red petioles. The leaves can be solid green or variegated with stripes, marbled or bordered with pale green, red or gray. The inconspicuous, tiny flowers are grown in the form of greenish yellow to brown conical spike like an inverted catkin. The stems and leaves of Peperomia species contain the poisonous alkaloid.

Planting and care

Most peperomias will propagate from leaf cuttings. The best time for propagation is spring, but rooting can also be done in fall. Cut off leaf along with a little stem. Stick several leaf cuttings in one pot. Press or tamp soil down around cuttings after watering. Cover pot with a plastic bag or soda bottle – put several holes in bag or soda bottle. Leave pot in normal room temperature. Remove plastic bag or soda bottle regularly for fresh air and prevent rotting. New plants will start growing from leaf base. When plants are rooted well and big enough they can be repotted into individual pots.

Sunlight: Full sun to partial shade
Soil: Well draine soil.
Water: Moderate to sparingly in summer allowing the topsoil to dry out before watering again. Reduce watering in winter and allowing the topsoil to dry out for a bit longer.
Temperature: 25-35 degrees
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer during spring.

  • Keep in a bright sunny location.
  • Try not to water the leaves, give water to soil only.
  • Avoid overwatering as the roots may get rot.

  • Re-pot when the plant performs clump and goes beyond the pot size. It should be done before or after the rainy season and in the spring season.
  • Avoid keeping in suffocated areas or in dark room.
