Pip is the cutest of the Peperomia family, with his rippled heart shaped leaves. He's the perfect pal for bringing a pop of happiness to your desk or shelf.  Peperomias may look like succulents due to their thick fleshy leaves, but they originate from the rainforests of South America.

Caring for Pip

Light

Peperomias prefer bright filtered light, but can tolerate lower light conditions, although growth will be slower.

Water & humidity

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.

Feeding

Feed monthly in summer with a sachet of organic Canola Meal. Don't feed in winter.

Re-potting

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.

Atrium Top Tip

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.

Quirky plant fact

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!
