How to Care for a Peperomia Frost

Use these instructions to care for a Peperomia Frost. This guide will tell you how to water your Peperomia Frost, its light, temperature, and humidity preferences; and any additional care your plant might need to help it grow.

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS

Your Peperomia Frost prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but growth may slow.

WATER REQUIREMENTS

Water your Peperomia Frost when the top 50-75% of the soil is dry. Water thoroughly, until excess water flows from the drainage hole into the saucer, but do not allow your Peperomia to sit in excess water or soggy soil. Your Peperomia Frost is similar to a succulent in that it stores water in its leaves and can tolerate drying out a bit between waterings.

HUMIDITY PREFERENCE

Your Peperomia Frost will tolerate average household humidity. However, like most tropical plants, it will benefit from added humidity. You can add humidity by placing a humidifier nearby, misting often, or using a pebble tray.

OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE

Your Peperomia Frost prefers average room temperatures between 60-80 degrees.

PLANT FOOD 

Your Peperomia Frost will benefit from regular fertilizing during the growing season. Feed once per month in the spring and summer months with general houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength.  

ADDITIONAL CARE

Peperomia can be easily propagated through leaf cuttings. If you want to multiply your plants or share with a friend, make a cut on a stem below a leaf, and stick the stem into the water. Roots will begin to develop after a few weeks. Once roots develop, transfer to soil and keep moist.

TOXICITY

Your Peperomia Frost is non-toxic and pet-friendly!
