Additional information
Peperomia is a relatively easy, compact, and attractive little plant to grow. They are neither as striking as begonias nor as hardy as dracaena, which may account for their relatively low profile in the world of houseplants. But these plants have all the features you look for in houseplants: variability, interesting leaves, and tolerance for a relatively wide range of conditions. Although it may be tempting to think of Peperomia as succulents, due to their thick, slightly succulent leaves, that would be a mistake because they generally prefer higher humidity and more water than most succulents.
Care instructions
Feed occasionally with liquid fertilizer and mist with water at regular intervals to increase humidity.
Colour of foliage
Multi-coloured
Hardiness
Prefers temperatures above 10C.
Planting instructions
Peperomia thrives when slightly pot-bound, so don't over pot them. Repot plants in spring, especially to refresh the existing soil, but place either back into the same size container after root-pruning or go up only one pot size. The largest Peperomia remain relatively small, so they will never grow into large specimen plants.
Planting position
Place in bright but indirect light.
Rate of growth
Slow rate of growth.
RHS Award of Garden Merit
No
Soil type
