A little bit cheeky and a lot of glamour. A Peperomia is the ultimate finishing touch to a designer table and probably one of the chicest plants you'll ever own. Its high tolerance for any environmental conditions make it an ideal plant for a novice. submit arrow

Bright light with a bit of shade

Bright light with a bit of shade

It will do best in bright light that's a bit shaded.

Excessive direct sunlight during the summer months can cause leaf scorching.

It will adapt to a lower light condition but will become leggy as it stretches towards the light. If this happens, prune it back to retain the compact appearance of the plant. Just be sure to move the plant to a brighter location if this happens.

Water infrequently

Water infrequently

Water thoroughly till the liquid drains out of the hole.

Water only once the top 2 inches of soil has completely dried out.

There's a tendency to kill peperomia by being extra enthusiastic with the watering can. Don't water on a schedule. Poke your finger into the soil to check its moisture level. Avoid watering if you feel even a hint of moisture. Once it's completely dry, it's time for a drink.

Early signs of overwatering include rotting stalks, wilting or yellowing leaves, a heavy pot and waterlogged soil.

1. Trim off yellowing leaves snipping closely to the central stem.

2. Scrape off any white mould on top of the soil. It’s just harmless fungi that lives in the soil.

3. Poke holes in the soil with a chopstick to aerate it and and give your plant a bit of extra breathing room. Sprinkle a tablespoon of vitamins in the soil and massage in.

4. Shine its leaves with a damp cloth, gently removing any dust. Front and back. This not only makes your plant look nicer but also helps it to soak in light more easily.

5. Spin it around to make sure its leaves are sunned evenly as it tends to grow towards sunlight.

6. Clean your cork mat with soap and water or white vinegar.
