The Peperomia family is a very large plant family of about 500 ornamental foliage plants and is related to the pepper plant. Most Peperomia variations originally come from the Amazon basin of South America, where they grow in warm and shaded conditions. Peperomias are easy to care for and suitable for most rooms in the home. Most plants produce a flower of a striking colour or small bell or spike flower.
Peperomia Pepperspot has small, round, glossy green leaves and will look great in a hanging basket, kokedama ball, or a pot.
It will quickly fill in and create a thick mass of vines and leaves and because of this, it makes a great ground cover. Can hang freely for a vertical vine look, or left on a side to let the foliage spread out organically.
As this is a plant that traditionally grows in the Amazon under the cover of other trees, it will do well with bright indirect light to mimic the shading that it would experience in its natural environment. It prefers well drained soil and drier conditions. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings, make sure the plant pot you’re using has drainage holes and don’t allow your plant to sit in soggy soil or you run the risk of root rot. Peperomia Pepperspots can be sensitive to overwatering and a clear sign of this is squishy leaves. If you notice your plant’s leaves starting to turn soft then you know you have a problem and you need to ease up on the watering.
Peperomia Pepperspot is a relatively easy plant to propagate which can be done through a simple cutting. You can either take a leave or a piece of stem with leaves in tact and place the cutting in water or soil. Please note that the photo is indicative, each plant has different shape and size. This plant comes in a plastic hanging pot.
Dimensions: pot size Ø 15 cm / vine length 40 cm (approx)
