The Peperomia genus has over 1000 species, but only a dozen or so make for good houseplants. The Peperomia caperata is one of them. Known for its heart-shaped, deeply puckered leaves, which range in color from rich green to hues of red or silver-gray, depending on variety. Occasionally the Ripple Peperomia will produce thin, cream colored flower stalks. Generally an easy care plant, the Peperomia can become “leggy” if not given enough sun.
Medium to bright light. Tolerates low light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
Water once or twice a week, depending on season. Spring to summer, water as soon as potting mix begins to dry out. Fall to winter, allow mix to dry out almost completely before watering thoroughly.
Don’t sweat it. Average home humidity is fine; can tolerate dry air.
Average home temperature of 65°F-75°F. If you’re comfortable, the Ripple Peperomia is comfortable.Local Delivery or Store Pick up Only
