PEPEROMIA CARE GUIDE
Get Started with the Peperomia
Bright, indirect sunlight works perfectly for the plant. It can also tolerate medium and low light conditions.
Only water the plant once the top 1 to 2 inches of soil feel dry. Water it thoroughly once the topsoil dries. Yellowing leaves and rotting stalks are signs of overwatering.
Peperomia loves high humidity. Place it over a tray of moistened pebbles to raise the humidity for the plant. Misting it regularly is also a great idea.
65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit works perfectly for the plant. You may need to turn on the house heating if the temperature drops below 60 degrees since that’s the danger zone for Peperomia.
Peperomia is completely non-toxic to humans and animals, you can place it anywhere in the house without a worry, even if you have children or pets.
The plant may attract sap-sucking pests. Washing the leaves with soapy water or applying a bit of neem oil will help solve the problem.
