The Peperomia is best placed in a medium to bright area without the direct sunlight. It can also handle low-light and even under fluorescent lights, making it suitable for office settings.


While the Peperomia likes moisture, it doesn’t like wet or soggy soil, which may cause root rot. We recommend you allow the top 3cm of soil to dry out between waterings. In the cooler months, your plant won’t want as much water.

Temperature & Humidity

The Peperomia prefers average to warm environments and average humidity. It will enjoy a good misting, especially in an air-conditioned environment to increase humidity levels.


Keep your Peperomia looking lush and fresh by gently wiping the leaves down with a moist cloth. You can also trim any unwanted growth to maintain its compact appearance.
