Light:

Water:

Humidity:
Your plant will take up some moisture from the air. Misting every week or so will keep it happy.
Temperature:
These are tropical plants, so warm conditions are best to keep them healthy.
Fertiliser:
Naturally, peperomia are slow-growing epiphytes so they can grow happily without any fertiliser.

Non-Toxic
Additional Care Information:
Super easy to propagate to make new peperomia plant babies through cutting. Trim a leaf, and put gently into compost. Dipping the leaf into some rooting powder will make it grow strong!

  • Browning tips, edges & leaves falling: too cold or under-watering
  • Rooting or blistering leaves: overwatering or too much sunlight.
