Care tips

Water: underwatering is better than overwatering
Dip your finger one inch deep into the soil. If the soil feels dry, it’s time to water. Make sure that the water drains through the drainage hole and discard any excess water in the saucer.

Light: medium and indirect
Peperomia is very adaptable. It will thrive in an indirect bright light condition. Avoid too much direct sunlight or very dark spots in the house.

Soil & Repotting: good drainage
Once your Peperomia’s roots have filled the existing pot, re-pot to the next size container. Use any all-purpose or tropical soil mixture with good drainage. Choose a pot that has drip holes at the bottom.

Temperature: 60-80°F
Peperomia plants are originally from the rain forests of Brazil and like a warm, humid environment. Keep Peperomia between 60 and 80°F (15-27°C). Keep the plant away from drafts to avoid damage to the leaves.

Fertilizer: 20-20-20
Feed once a month during the growing season
(April-September) using a liquid all-purpose fertilizer 20-20-20 diluted to half strength. Fertilizer is not required from November to February but can be fed once every two months.

    Smaller than I expected. Perhaps I missed measurements somewhere in the listing??Plant looked a little sad when I opened it. To be expected I assume. Looks great though. Look forward to seeing it grow.
