The Peperomia Albo - Marginata is an indoor pot plant and prefers warmer temperatures. It won’t like temperatures lower than 10°C. Ideal temperatures range between 16-26°C.
The Peperomia is an easy plant to water. Let the top part of the soil dry out entirely before thoroughly watering. It doesn’t like to be overwatered or sit too wet.
The best lighting to keep your Peperomia happy is bright indirect light. If your plant is kept in a spot that is too dark, it will start to reach out towards a light source and can become quite leggy. Make sure you rotate your plant to ensure it’s getting an even amount of light so it grows consistently on all sides.
While the Peperomia is a steady grower, fertiliser in the spring and summer will help boost your plant’s growth.
Any well-draining, nutrient-rich mix is ideal. If your potting mix isn’t well-aerated, you can add things like pumice and orchid bark to assist in drainage.
The Peperomia has a small root system and doesn’t need to be re-potted very often. If the plant begins to look out of shape, you can pinch any leggy stems to create a more compact and bushy plant.
The Peperomia Polybotrya is non-toxic and's safe around animals and humans.
