Plant Care Tips: Peperomia ‘Rosso’

  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight. Can tolerate partial shade and low light levels. 
  • Water: Peperomias prefer consistently moist soil. Water your plant when the top few centimetres of soil have almost dried out. 
  • Humidity: Can tolerate average humidity levels but thrives in high humidity. Try misting the foliage regularly and consider placing it in your kitchen or bathroom for an extra boost!
  • Temperature: For best results, keep at temperatures between 18-24°C. Avoid cold draughts and temperatures below 10°C. 
  • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix. 
  • Fertilizer: Feed with a diluted fertilizer once or twice a month during the growing season (spring to summer). 
  • Propagation: The best way to propagate your Peperomia is through stem and leaf cuttings. 

Pets: Non-toxic and safe around pets and children. 

Peperomia ‘Rosso’ - Common Issues and Questions

The leaves at the bottom of my Peperomia are yellowing. What am I doing wrong?

If the bottom leaves of your Peperomia are turning yellow, your plant is being overwatered. Remember to only water your Peperomia when the soil begins to dry out. You should also make sure that your plant is getting enough light, as too much shade and overwatering can cause it to develop root rot. 

How often should I repot my Peperomia?

You should repot your Peperomia when it starts to outgrow its current pot. You can tell that your plant is rootbound when the roots start to peek out of the drainage holes or when the foliage begins to wilt. Repot your Peperomia into a slightly larger pot using a fresh potting mix. 

Common pests: Your Peperomia is less likely to attract pests if it is looked after properly. A weakened Peperomia will attract mealybugs, spider mites, and whitefly. Any infestations should be treated immediately with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
