Peperomias are happiest in medium to bright light. They DO NOT like direct sunlight. They do well under fluorescent lighting, which making them ideal for offices.

Peperomias do not like to be over watered. Water only when the soil has almost dried out. It is best to water them from underneath. Water will then be stored in the leaves making them quite drought tolerant.

Prefers warm temps of 60-80 degrees in the day and no lower than 55 degrees at night.

Peperomias do not require much fertilizer. Any diluted liquid fertilizer labeled for indoor plants will work. Use only once or twice in the spring or summer.

A peat based; well-draining soil is best. 2 parts, peat and 1-part perlite or sand is a good mix.
