Short stems of elliptical, green and silver, watermelon striped leaves. They will form a nice dense clump and then spill over the edge of the pot. A sensational plant with flat and curled leaves.
Peperomia make a nice shade, Terrarium or house plant. In warm areas they grow well outdoors and make a nice ground cover or edging plant for a shady spot.
SIZE: 5-15cm x 10-40cm
I SEE THE LIGHT: Bright, indirect light is ideal. Fairly tolerant of low light. You should be able to read during the day in their position in the room without turning on a light. If you only have artificial light, they will need about eight hours a day.
WATER NEEDS: Allow the top soil of the pot to dry out before watering again, they will forgive you if you miss a watering or two, as they store some moisture in their foliage. You are more likely to kill them with kindness as over watering can lead to rotting.
I WILL SURVIVE: In pots choose a good quality potting mix to ensure they have the drainage they need. Choose an pot with drainage holes, or be promise to be careful with watering - they don’t like to sit in boggy soils. A diluted liquid fertiliser in spring and summer will keep them happy and healthy. You will only need to repot if they are root bound, every few years.
Keep them clear of cold draughty positions or they will sulk. Pinch them back in spring/summer to encourage bushy growth.
