Orgin: South America.
Common Name: Parallel Peperomia, Peace Plant
- Water: Water when the soil becomes dry to the touch then provide a thorough watering. Peperomias are semi-succulent in nature which makes overwatering a big problem, but they do need more watering than many succulents. When lacking water the plant will just wilt, which is easy to resolve. During winter – water much less.
- Light: This peperomia requires bright light without direct sunlight. Too much direct sunlight may scorch the leaves. Not enough light, growth will be lacking.
Ideal temperatures of 65-75ºF (18-24ºC), and no lower than 50ºF (10ºC). Avoid sudden temperature drops and cold drafts.
- Soil: A peat based potting mix is best used that drains well. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite is a good mix. Other mixes work well as long as they drain well, and can retain some moisture.
