GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Peperomia are slow-growing tropical annuals and perennials that are easy to care for under average room or conservatory conditions.
  • They have striking foliage with red stems.
  • The foliage is fleshy, often with variegation.
  • The flowers are insignificant.
  • 'Apricot' has apricot-colored irregular edging to the leaves, and some apricot-colored markings.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • A peat-based soil is best used that drains well. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite is a good mix.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Use a diluted liquid fertilizer once every 2 - 4 weeks.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • A bright room with the plant placed in a shaded spot is ideal, without direct sunlight.
  • In their natural habitat, they reside undercover within forests with some sun and shade so we need to try and replicate this.
  • Sitting back from the west, east, or even south-facing window is best.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • It's important not to water these plants too much or underwater them.
  • Over-watering can cause rot and under-watering will make them wilt.
  • To get watering just about right, allow the soil to dry to the touch at the top and then water thoroughly, but much less during winter.
