Peperomias prefer bright filtered light, but can tolerate lower light conditions, although growth will be slower.
Peperomias don't like to be overwatered. This variety has thick fleshy leaves, an indicator that they're able to hold water. Pip likes his soil to dry out at least 2-3cm down before being watered again. Average humidity will do, just keep away from cold draughts, or hot dry heaters.
Feed monthly in summer with a sachet of organic Canola Meal. Don't feed in winter.
Peperomias like to be potbound, so they only really need re-potting to refresh the soil every spring. If you want a bigger plant, only go one pot size up.
Watch out for rotting stalks, wilting or yellowing leaves - this could be a sign of overwatering. Peperomias respond really well to pruning and it helps them retain a bushy compact appearance.
Peperomias are part of the Piperaceae family, with over 1,000 species - the most well-known being Piper nigrum, the black peppercorn vine, which is where we get pepper from!
