Product Description

Peperomia puteolata, the Radiator Peperomia is native to South America. The colorful leaves are arranged in helix, giving it a very elegant look. Culture: Peperomias does best in at least 50% shade with temperatures of 68 to 75 degrees, and in winter, the temperature should not be less than 50 degrees. It is usually enough to water the plant every 8 to 10 days, but that depends on temperature and time of the year. Plants should be fertilized twice a month in summer with a balanced fertilizer diluted to the strength recommended on the label. The plant does not need re-potting unless it becomes too large for the pot. The roots are better off in a pot that is a little on the small side. The plant needs a porous soil, as it needs plenty of air around the roots. A suitable compost consists of 3 parts peat moss to 1 part loam to 1 part sharp sand. Propagation: Peperomias are propagated by division or by leaf cuttings. Take leaf cuttings with a little bit of stem, dip in rooting hormone, place the leaf and stem in compost, water well and cover with a plastic bag. Remove the plastic bag once in a while to prevent the leaves from rotting. New plants will start from the base of the leaves. You will receive 2 plants growing in 3" pots.
