Peperomia are classic, low maintenance houseplants. These tropical succulents require bright, indirect light and a weekly watering. These plants are sensitive to direct sun and overwatering. Let your Peperomia dry out between waterings. We recommend using very porous and well draining soil mix. This particular Peperomia is an epiphyte and can grow in soil, or attached to organic material such as moss or wood.



Peperomia will need to be kept in the shade outdoors. Allow the soil to dry out in between watering. Avoid freezing temperatures, these plants thrive above 55 degrees fahrenheit.
