The Pepperomia Pepperspot is an attractive, easy care plant. Plump round foliage with red backed veins develop into soft trailing stems. It is particularly suited to growing in low or fluorescent light, making it perfect for offices and shady spots.
This compact trailing houseplant is often given as a gift, thought to bestow wealth and prosperity on the recipient due to its common name String of Coins.
Please note: the stems and leaves on this plant are very fragile and despite our best efforts some may be lost during transit.
Divide and conquer! Peperomia are one of the easier plants to propagate. Taking cuttings in the spring and putting them into a glass of water or wet compost will promote new root growth and eventually new plants.
And then there were many! When the stems become overly long, simply cut them back to the desired length with disinfected clippers. These cuttings can be placed in a glass of water or soil, eventually growing new plants.
How much is too much? Peperomia plants are sensitive to overwatering. Too wet and it will rot, too dry and it will die. When the soil has nearly dried out, give it a little drink.
