This beautiful trailing tropical with tiny, turtle-like leaves makes a wonderful houseplant. It is extremely easy to care for, needing only bright, indirect light and a good soak once a week. Make sure to let the soil dry out between waterings, but don't let your plant sit dry for extended periods of time.



Peperomia make great outdoor plants, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, your Peperomia can be kept in Full Shade, but make sure to not keep it in direct sunlight for long periods of time (Texas Zone 8). Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about once every 4-5 with moderate temperatures.
