How do you take care of a Peperomia?

The best location

You make the Peperomia happy when you place the plant on a spot with indirect sunlight. Too much light can burn the leaves of the Peperomia. If there is too little light, the plant will darken. Peperomia prefers a location near a window on the north side. A window facing west or east is also fine. In any case, a window facing south is not a good idea.

Watering the Peperomia
Peperomia prefers to stand in moist soil. Although the plant has properties of a succulent plant. Every week water is therefore only needed in the summer. Water the plant once every 1.5 to 2 weeks in winter. Keep a close eye on the soil. It is in any case not a problem if the soil is equally dry. Even if the plant enjoys slightly moist soil more.

Plant nutrition
To keep the Peperomia happy you can feed it once a month from spring to summer. Use food for Cacti and never give more than necessary. The moment you give too much nourishment, the roots of the plant can get damaged.

Repotting

It is best to repot Peperomia once every three years. More often is really not necessary. Because Peperomia is not a fast grower. On the contrary! We recommend repotting after purchase, and only after three years. When repotting, use fresh soil and a flowerpot that is at least 20% larger than its previous one.

Air purifying function

Purifying the air is unlikely to do Peperomia any good. Mainly the substance Formaldehyde, gets it out of the air in no time. This harmful substance occurs in many households and offices. Peperomia is therefore an ideal office plant!

Is Peperomia poisonous?

Good news! Peperomia is not poisonous. So the plant is certainly safe for pets and children. If you have eaten from the leaves, you can always contact a doctor to be sure.

Diseases and peculiarities

Peperomia is not susceptible to diseases and vermin. If the plant does suffer from spider mite, you can recognize it by its brown and dry leaves. Do you recognize pests or diseases in time? Then you can use pesticides.
