Product Description

Peperomia is a quirky houseplant. With a wide range of varieties and colours, it makes for a very attractive and modern houseplant.

Product Details

Material
Plastic
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
Position in light shade, out of direct sunlight.
Colour of foliage
Green and Burgundy
Feeding instructions
Fertilize biweekly during the growing season with a diluted liquid fertilizer or use controlled-release fertilizer pellets at the beginning of the growing season.
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.
