Peperomia - “Radiator Plant”

Light: Peperomias prefer bright indirect light. They can handle a few hours of direct sun, but too much direct light will burn their leaves. 

Water: Water thoroughly, but when the top two inches of soil go dry between waterings. Think of peperomia as semi-succulents, as some of their water is stored in their thick leaves. Do not allow plants to sit in water. 

Environment: Peperomia plants are originally from the rainforests of Central and South America (with a few species from Africa) and prefer a warm, humid environment. Temperatures below 50°F or cold drafts may damage the plant’s leaves. 

Toxicity: Peperomia are reported to be non-toxic

Of Note:

  • Peperomias come in a variety of colors, sizes, and shapes allowing for great variety and are generally considered easy houseplants as long as they are not overwatered.
  • Peperomia grow relatively slowly but are easy to propagate through cuttings.
  • Most species are epiphytes in the wild, growing on other organisms. 
  • Peperomia do not require much in the way of fertilizer and can usually subsist on the nutrients in the soil.
    *When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting.
