Caring for Jade

Light

Peperomias prefer bright filtered light. Lower light conditions can make the plant look leggy and it will lose its full bushy appearance.

Water & humidity

Peperomias don't like to be overwatered. This variety has thick fleshy leaves, an indicator that they're able to hold water. They like the 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 organic fertiliser. 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. Use an indoor potting mix with added succulent mix to prevent the soil from becoming waterlogged.

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!
