Peperomia rotundifolia 
This plant brings the heat!

Peperomia – round leafed

The lovely pale fresh green leaves of this cute ‘radiator plant’ are very striking! An easily grown plant, Peperomia rotundifolia makes a great hanging plant too with its long tendrils which gently hang over the edge of the pot. The leaves are thick and feel slightly waxy and rather resemble those of a succulent. Water only when the potting compost feels dry to the touch.
A sturdy houseplant for a light spot, but not in full sun.

  • Planting
  • Peperomia rotundifolia is supplied in a growing pot and will need potting up as soon as possible. Choose a pot one with holes in the base that can stand in a saucer to allow the pot to drain. Water well once settled and stand in a warm, light position out of the full sun. Empty the saucer of any excess water after half an hour as the plant dislikes standing in water. Water again only when the potting compost feels dry to the touch.

  • Care
  • Peperomia rotundifolia is a really easy houseplant to care for. It prefers rain water to anything else, and a little plant food every fortnight is perfect. Best temperature for a ‘radiator plant’ is anything from 18-28°C and high humidity is also appreciated.

    The plant dislikes standing in water so missing a watering is better than giving it too much. If you leave for 3 weeks holiday, just forget about it until you come home.

    If the buds wither or die they can be removed and with good care, the plant will flower again next year.
