Humidity

As with most tropical indoor plants, Peperomia Dendrophila benefit from higher humidity, but will do fine in average household air.

Light

Your Peperomia Dendrophila prefers bright but indirect light. If placed in lower light, growth will slow.

Soil

Use a well-aerated loose potting soil that drains quickly.

Temperature

Ideal temperatures of 65-75ºF (18-24ºC), and no lower than 50ºF (10ºC).

Watering

Water thoroughly, and allow the soil to dry out a bit between waterings. This small houseplant can effectively hold water in their fleshy stems and leaves during times of drought and are therefore quite forgiving if you forget to water it once in a while.

Fertilizing

Your Peperomia Dendrophila will benefit from regular fertilizing during the growing season. Feed once per month in the spring and summer months with general houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength.

Propagation

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