Peperomia caperata is a species of Peperomia, named 'caperata' meaning wrinkled, in-reference to its leaves. This tropical plant grows low but gets high praise from horticulturists worldwide. This peperomia is easily propagated via leaf-cuttings, and is able to regenerate after completely dying back to the stem. Peperomias are also the safest to grow for curious cats and dogs.
Medium light. Tolerates low light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
Water weekly to semi-weekly. Allow potting mix to completely dry out before watering. The smaller the pot, the faster the soil dries out. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth. Do not overwater or keep the soil wet for too long, as this will encourage root rot.
Peperomias will let you know as soon as they're not feeling the love by wilting, this is a great indicator that you need to water.
