Peperomia

Light: 

Peperomia plants grow well in bright indirect light or semi-shade. These plants even grow under fluorescent lights. Keep away from direct sunlight.  

 

Water: 

Water moderately spring to autumn, allow the top half of the soil to dry out in between waterings.  Water cautiously in the winter. Over-watering, resulting in root-rot, is the main cause of serious peperomia plant problems. It’s best to water these plants from the bottom. This technique keeps the leaves dry and helps prevent plant diseases. 

 

Fertilizer:

Fertilize peperomia plants monthly in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. It’s not necessary to feed a peperomia in the fall and winter.

 

Temperature:

Warm temperatures between 60°-80° F are best. Temperatures below 50°-55° F and cold drafts from windows and doors damage peperomia plant leaves.

 

Potting:

Avoid frequent re-potting, only when necessary plant into a slightly larger pot in spring.
