Humidity

Peperomia Gracilipeduncula plants are from the rain forests of {{origin}} and like a humid environment.

Light

Peperomia Gracilipeduncula prefer medium bright indirect light. For this type of light, it is best to place them in front of a south-or west-facing window or close to (but not in front of) a north- or east-facing window.

Soil

Use a well-aerated potting soil that drains quickly.

Temperature

Your Peperomia Gracilipeduncula prefers temperatures between 60-80 degrees during the day and should not get colder than 55 degrees at night.

Watering

Water your Peperomia Gracilipeduncula when the soil is about 50-75% dry. Water thoroughly, until excess water flows from the drainage hole into the saucer, but do not allow your Peperomia to sit in excess water or soggy soil. Your Peperomia Gracilipeduncula is similar to a succulent in that it stores water in its leaves and can tolerate drying out a bit between waterings.

Fertilizing

Peperomia Gracilipeduncula are not heavy feeders, so you can fertilize them once a month during the growing season with a complete liquid fertilizer at the recommended strength, or you can top dress the soil with worm castings, or a rich compost once in the early summer.

Propagation

Taking leaf cuttings is the most common method of propagation. When leaf cuttings are taken, allowing a day for the wounds to dry out is good practice for replanting. Try to provide warm temperatures of about 20ºC (68ºF) with bright light and cover cuttings with plastic to encourage growth until you see the first appearance of growth.
