Botanical Name: Peperomia Rotundifolia
Peperomia Rotundifolia care guide
Peperomia’s do well in medium to bright light so there are number of spots in the house where they can grow. As long as it doesn’t get direct sunlight then it will be fine.
This plants are semi-succulents so becareful not to over water them. Rather let them dry out a bit before watering again. If you notice that their leaves are starting to go black and the stems getting squishy, cut off the dead bit and let the soil dry out completely.
They can tolerate normal humidity in the house, but they do prefer a higher humidity, so they will appreciate a misting whenever you have a chance.
As with all plants, fertilizing is very important. These guys will enjoy being fertlized at least every two weeks with a general liquid fertlizer, or a water soluble fertlizer like Multi Booster.
These plants generally don’t need to be repotted out quite often. They require a well draining soil mixture that has good moisture retention.
Try and only use a premium potting mix such as the Gromor Potting Soil and but also add in Perlite that will assist with good drainage, plus peat moss and coir husks that will hold in some moisture.
Nice to know:
Peperomia’s can be mildly toxic to animals.
