Maintenance Notes: 
  • For optimal performance, keep your Peperomia at 60-85°F (15-29°C). 
  • Peperomias prefer to be grown in medium to bright, indirect light. They may tolerate lower light, but will not grow as fast or have variegation that is as vivid. Direct sunlight can lead to leaf scorch. 
  • If your Peperomia is getting leggy or leaning to one side, it is stretching for more light. Move it to a brighter location and rotate your plant regularly to ensure even light distribution, and even growth.
  • Peperomias aren’t all that fussy when it comes to humidity, but varieties with thinner, less succulent leaves may benefit from higher humidity.
  • This succulent-like Peperomia prefers to dry out in between waterings. Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry. 
  • Feed your Peperomia once per month at half strength when it is actively growing. Reduce frequency of fertilization in the winter months. 
  • Protect furniture when watering & fertilizing.
  • Peperomias with succulent-leaves grow best in a Cactus or Succulent Soil Mix, or in an all-purpose potting mix with added sand and perlite to ensure sharp drainage.
