Peperomia Plant Care Cheat Sheet

Peperomias come in many shapes, sizes, and textures, making them a fun and whimsical plant to place in your home.

Lighting: This a low light tolerant plant that can tolerate around 1-2 hours of direct light. To maintain the plant's size, a minimum of 100 FC is required. To achieve good growth, you will want to look for 200 FC.

Watering: This plant should dry out at least 1/2 of the pot before its next watering. It's a forgiving species that can handle drying out for a bit, if forgotten.


This quick cheat sheet is meant to give you tips and tricks for how to best care for your plant. All of the information above is based on my personal experience and advice with houseplants and the lighting requirements are a reference from Daryl Chang of House Plant Journal.

*FC is lighting measured in Foot Candles and requires a light meter to get an accurate reading.
