Light

Peperomias prefer bright filtered light, but can tolerate lower light conditions, although growth will be slower.

Water & humidity

Peperomias don't like to be overwatered. This variety has thick fleshy leaves, an indicator that they're able to hold water. Pip likes his soil to dry out at least 2-3cm down before being watered again. Average humidity will do, just keep away from cold draughts, or hot dry heaters.

Feeding

Feed monthly in summer with a sachet of organic Canola Meal. Don't feed in winter.

Re-potting

Peperomias like to be potbound, so they only really need re-potting to refresh the soil every spring. If you want a bigger plant, only go one pot size up.

Atrium Top Tip

Watch out for rotting stalks, wilting or yellowing leaves - this could be a sign of overwatering. Peperomias respond really well to pruning and it helps them retain a bushy compact appearance.

Quirky plant fact

Peperomias are part of the Piperaceae family, with over 1,000 species - the most well-known being Piper nigrum, the black peppercorn vine, which is where we get pepper from!
