Peperomia Gracillima Care
This species does like a humid environment. During the warmer months you can mist the leaves and/or place the plant on a pebble tray with water at the bottom. Most homes should be fine with its natural humidity if the air is not dry.
Peperomia Gracillima 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.
Use a well-aerated loose potting soil that drains quickly.
Your Peperomia Gracillima prefers temperatures between 60-80 degrees during the day and should not get colder than 55 degrees at night.
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.
Fertilize monthly in the spring and summer with a balanced houseplant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. It's not necessary to feed a Peperomia Gracillima plant in the fall and winter.
Leaf and stem tip cuttings may be propagated. The leaves on this species are smaller and less succulent than other Peperomia Gracillima, which makes stem tip cuttings the best option. Take a few centimeters of stem tips with one or two leaves attached and at least one node. Allow a day for the wound to heal then transplant into a small pot with moist soil, partly peat and perlite or vermiculite. To encourage new growth, provide warm temperatures of about 20ºC (68ºF) with bright light, and you may wish to use rooting hormone on the cut and cover the pot/tray with a plastic cover.
