The Peperomia caperata is a member of the Piperaceae family native to South America. It is sought for by plant lovers given its very generous, luscious foliage and funky look!
The Peperomia caperata develops a rosette of thick grayish-green and waffled leaves. It can very well by hung or set in a planter. Though it resembles a succulent, it requires more frequent watering.
The Peperomia caperata appreciates good ambient light, but dislikes direct sun, which can scorch its foliage. Ideally, place it in an eastern facing window. Give your Peperomia caperata a drink when its soil dries up almost completely from top to bottom. The frequency may vary depending on the season and humidity level of the room.
When you take possession of your plant, make sure you assess its watering needs. Before you give it a drink the first time, check the soil’s moisture level to verify whether or not it is moist near the surface. It is best to aerate the soil before the initial watering since it is often compacted to avoid shifting during transit. This also allows it to breathe and release moisture.
Rotate your plant periodically in order to encourage an even growth. Cleaning the leaves regularly will stimulate proper photosynthesis. As you wipe the foliage, inspect the leaves on either side to make sure there are no pests.
