Peperomia plants grow well in bright indirect light or semi-shade. These plants even grow under fluorescent lights. Keep away from direct sunlight.
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.
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.
Warm temperatures between 60°-80° F are best. Temperatures below 50°-55° F and cold drafts from windows and doors damage peperomia plant leaves.
Avoid frequent re-potting, only when necessary plant into a slightly larger pot in spring.
