Peperomia Graveolens Care
Normal indoor humidity levels should be fine. During the summer misting the leaves is advisable and grouping plants, especially other Peperomia Graveolens may help improve humidity.
Your Peperomia Graveolens prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but growth may slow.
A peat based soil is best used that drains well. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite or sand is a good mix. The medium must drain well and be well aerated, but it requires some kind of water retention for the small roots to absorb nutrients.
Your Peperomia Graveolens does not require extra humidity to thrive, but it would appreciate being misted a few times a week.
Overwatering is the worst offender for most Peperomia Graveolens including this species. This is because of its succulent nature and small roots . Allow the soil to become dry then water thoroughly. During the winter reduce watering to a minimum. Better too little than too much.
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 Graveolens plant in the fall and winter.
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.
