Comments: This peperomia is an excellent house plant. It does quite well in areas that are exposed to natural light during the morning hours. It cannot tolerate freezing temperatures. Provide a fertile, porous soil and keep plants only slightly moist to the touch. This tropical cannot tolerate overwatering. Fertilize indoor plants every month during the period of active growth.
