Peperomia Caperata

A member of the Piperaceae family, this compact plant has short stems covered by heart-shaped, deeply ridged leaves. The leaves are green, sometimes with a blush of red, and dark green veins. Peperomia Caperata is usually trouble-free. The only thing that really bothers this plant is soggy soil.

Don’t overwater. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Water sparingly in winter, when growth is slower. Wilting leaves is likely because drainage is poor and its roots are not getting enough oxygen. Protect this plant from direct sunlight. Peperomia caperata thrives under indoor grow lights, making it a good choice for an office plant.  Keep soil barely moist. Allow the top inch of soil to dry between waterings. Light peat moss potting mix that contains perlite or sand to help drainage. Peperomia likes some air around its roots. This plant will easily get stem and/or root rot if the potting medium is kept wet.
