Scientific name: Peperomia pixie lime
Sold in a 8cm plastic nursery pot.
Light: Peperomia does well in rooms with bright light or supplemented with fluorescent lighting. They can also do well in an office setting with only fluorescent lighting.
Water: The succulent leaves of peperomia plants indicate that the plants don't need frequent watering to maintain vigor. Allow the surface of the soil to dry out between waterings. Most Peperomia plants are susceptible to root rot as a result of over watering so be careful when watering the plant. In a terrarium environment they require even less water.
Fertilizer: When it comes to fertilizing your peperomia plants, less is more. Discolored or dropping leaves are usually a sign of inadequate light or excessive watering, not poor nutrition. As a slow-growing epiphyte, the peperomia can go its entire life without supplemental fertilizer, getting what it needs from its planting media.
Please note that these plants require regular watering. For this reason we only dispatch these orders on a Monday and Tuesday (to areas outside of Cape Town) so that the plants do not risk spending the weekend at the courier depot.
