As we already mentioned at the beginning of the article here, there really isn’t that much as far as caring for a peperomia plant. It can be pretty much condensed into caring about the soil and making sure the plant gets plenty of sunlight each day. That seems to do the trick in ensuring you have a happily growing plant.
You might wonder what the soil should be like then. Well for us, it seems to like soil which is kept slightly damp all the time is the best. This makes the roots always have access to nutrition and they won’t have to search long to get it.
But using some form of fertilizer for the soil can be great as well. Using manure will be the best all the time. It’s natural and full of nutrition, but the smell can be very off-putting. Because of that, you might instead want to keep the plant outdoors instead.
Keeping it outdoors during the spring and the summer season is actually a great option as the temperature will be high enough during the night to not make the leaves start wilting.
But since it’s a houseplant, we normally just keep it indoors all year round as it also serves an ornamental use for us. We tend to use fertilizers bought at the store then instead, bit organic and environmentally friendly ones of course.
