Peperomia Polybotrya Care
The Peperomia Polybotrya (raindrop peperomia) likes cool and humid conditions – the ideal temperature being 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 26 degrees Celsius). That said, it can put up with warmer temperatures as well during summers.
Raindrop Peperomia prefers the ubiquitous “bright indirect light” and warm temperatures (try not to go below 60F). That being said, indoors I give my plant a little bit of direct sun. Your plant will be happy in an Eastern exposure window where it receives gentler morning sunshine.
During summer and spring, water the plant generously, and at regular intervals. However, make sure you do not overdo it. Between each watering session, the soil should be relatively dry. In other words, the soil must be dry one to two inches from the top.
The heart-shaped leaves of the Peperomia Polybotrya are fleshy and pretty succulent. This is mainly because they retain moisture, which helps them survive through the dryer periods. Given the succulence of these leaves, the plant doesn’t need a very humid environment to grow well. In any case, excess moisture will only promote pests and diseases.
Having extremely well-drained soil is crucial for this plant. Some plants are forgiving when it comes to soil, but this one is not. Use a houseplant potting mix (African Violet mix works well) to ensure the soil has good drainage. Another option is a mixture of 50% peat moss and 50% perlite.
