My Growing Experience
I have been growing Peperomia for a long while and want to share some of my own experience of growing this amazing plant. It is not hard to grow this plant in door conditions, just not let it get direct sunlight will be preferable. This plant has some degrees of tolerance to dry condition, for families who want to plant greenery and don’t have a lot of time to take care of plants. Initially, I was growing it in a small pot, with proper shade, water and nutrients it grows quite fast. After a while, I just cut some branches off and stick it in the soil under bigger bushes to grow as ground cover plants. I grow this plant in hanging baskets too, in the baskets they can easily grow out of the edge of pots and create a waterfall looking appearance in front of the hanging windows and interior walls mount to add some nice green decorations for the house.
Peperomias can be divided in to three groups. The first group grow in small shade conditions, normally under other bigger plants canopy. The second group is more like succulent living habits and can be found in high altitude in nature. This group has very good tolerance to drought conditions, and for people who travel a lot or don’t have a lot of time to water plants, this group can be a very good choice. The third group of Peperomia is normally called Geophytic Peperomia that survive due to their underground tubers when leaves fall off.
It’s great plant that is easy to grow for people who don’t have much time on planting but want to add some living greens in their home. It’s also grown fast and have the nice polishing leaf surface to be a good indoor ornamental plant.
