Humidity

Peperomia Delicatula will enjoy a misting from time to time.

Light

Bright light and for the variegated types some direct sunlight (couple of hours) can help them grow well. If the leaves are dark green in color it's best not to provide direct sun as it will harm them, but the variegated types may lose variegation if enough light is not provided. South, east or west facing windows are best suited, but again dependent on the leaf color.

Soil

Use a well-aerated potting soil that drains quickly.

Temperature

Ideal temperatures of 65-75ºF (18-24ºC), and no lower than 50ºF (10ºC). Avoid sudden temperature drops and cold drafts.

Watering

Peperomia Delicatula with waxy leaves like to have the soil dry out between watering; ones with softer, thinner leaves need to be watered more often. A moisture meter can help determine when it 's time to water your plants!

Fertilizing

Fertilize monthly in the spring and summer with a balanced plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. It 's not necessary to feed a Peperomia Delicatula in the fall and winter.

Propagation

These plants are easily propagated from leaf cuttings, stem tip cuttings, and plant division.
