Baby Rubber Trees prefer medium bright indirect light. For this type of light, it is best to place them in front of a south- or west-facing window or close to (but not in front of) a north- or east-facing window. (Learn more about light requirements for indoor plants)

Peperomia with waxy leaves like to have the soil dry out between watering; ones with softer, thinner leaves need to be watered more often. A moisture meter can help determine when it’s time to water your plants!

Temperatures between 60-80℉ are ideal, and they can withstand temps as low as 55℉. However, these tropical houseplants love warmer conditions, so the warmer, the better!

As with most tropical indoor plants, Peperomias benefit from higher humidity, but will do fine in average household air.

Peperomias are not heavy feeders, so you can fertilize them once a month during the growing season with a complete liquid fertilizer at ½ the recommended strength, or you can top dress the soil with worm castings, or a rich compost once in the early summer.

Pro Tips
When repotting Peperomia, use a soil that has good drainage to discourage water-logged soil.
Peperomia do flower, but the blooms are small. Feel free to cut them off to encourage more foliage development.
Leach the soil once a season to flush out salt build up. Fertilize with a complete liquid fertilizer or top dressing of worm castings after leaching the soil.
