Peperomia are incredibly easy-going, low-care houseplants–great for beginners! Native to South American rainforests, Peperomia grow in the cool understory of the rainforest. Slow-growing and compact, some varieties of Peperomia are often mistaken as succulents. They may look and behave like succulents, but they’re not! Peperomia require a bit more water and higher humidity than your average succulent.

WATER
Peperomias hold water in their thick succulent-like leaves and stems, so they’ll be perfectly happy if you abandon them for a few weeks of vacation. In fact, they prefer the soil to dry out in between waterings, so as a general rule you can expect to water them only every other week.

LIGHT
Peperomias do well in moderate light to partial shade. They can tolerate low light as well, though the plant won’t be as hardy and the beautiful look of the foliage may suffer.
