Tips on how to grow your plant successfully:

Light: Best grown in bright indirect light.

Potting: Peperomia graveolens grows well in containers. Shallow containers are best as the plant has a shallow root system. Always ensure that a free draining potting medium is used. We recommend a good quality potting mix with the addition of sharp sand or gravel to improve the drainage. Re-potting of plants is best done in spring, the beginning of the growing period. Re-potting is only necessary when the plant has outgrown its current container. Always pot up into the next pot size up.

Watering: Peperomia graveolens is very sensitive to over-watering. Always water the plant thoroughly and allow the plant to drain, then allow the plant to almost dry out before watering again. Your plant should never stand in a drip tray with water after watering for any length of time. It is always best to pour this water off. The watering frequency should be reduced slightly during the winter months. Frequency of watering is always the most difficult cultural point to give advice on as there are so many variables which influence it. When in doubt as to whether to water or not it is probably best to rather let the plant dry for another day or two and then water it as over-watering can kill your plant very quickly.

Temperature: Peperomia graveolens is best grown in temperatures above 5 degrees Celsius.

Fertiliser: Peperomia graveolens will benefit from applications of a balanced water-soluble fertiliser during spring and summer. Always use a very dilute solution of ¼ to ½ of the recommended dilution rate.

Please Note:

Although our plants are grown under the same conditions and we carefully handpick your plant to ensure the best quality possible, no two plants are identical. The colours of plants can also vary according to the season. The plant supplied will be similar to the plant photographed. Photograph of the large plant if for reference purposes only.
