Planting And Care

If your peperomia plants are wilting, in spite of regular watering, the plant is likely not getting enough oxygen to the roots.

Avoid direct afternoon sun.

Set the plant in a humidified room or on wet pebbles.

Keep the peperomia leaves dry and provide good air circulation to prevent diseases.
Peperomia Obtusifolia Variegated Care
Most Peperomia species can be relatively easily propagated from leaf cuttings, similar to the way African violets are propagated. Remove large leaves with their stalks (petioles) and bury them in seedling starting soil. The use of a rooting hormone can increase the odds of success. Place the cutting in a warm, bright place until new growth emerges.

Sunlight Peperomia do well in light to moderate light, such as found in a northern or east-facing window. They can be easily grown under fluorescent lights.
Watering Keep the soil moist during the growing season and provide relatively high humidity through spraying or by setting the pot in a gravel tray.
Soil A loose, well-drained, very rich potting mix.
Temperature Average. Peperomia do well in the relatively cool environment of most homes (although they dislike the dry). 65 degrees F to 75 degrees F.
Fertilizer Use any organic fertilizer.
