How to Care for a Peperomia Ginny

How to Care for a Peperomia Ginny Plant

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

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS

Your Peperomia Ginny will be happiest in medium to bright light. Do not allow the direct sun to hit the foliage. They can tolerate lower light as well, and can even adapt to fluorescent lighting.  

WATER REQUIREMENTS

Water thoroughly, and allow the soil to dry out a bit between waterings. This small houseplant can effectively hold water in their fleshy stems and leaves during times of drought and are therefore quite forgiving if you forget to water it once in a while.  

HUMIDITY PREFERENCE

Peperomia Ginny will enjoy a misting from time to time.  

OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE

Your Peperomia Ginny prefers temperatures between 60-80 degrees during the day and should not get colder than 55 degrees at night.  

PLANT FOOD

You don't really need to fertilize your Peperomia, but you can fertilize your plant in the spring or summer if you'd like it to grow a little faster. Use any fertilizer made for indoor plants and follow the directions on the packaging. Leach the plant in summer by flushing with water to remove the salts left behind by fertilization.  

ADDITIONAL CARE

If at anytime during the year your Peperomia Ginny becomes unkept or out of hand, feel free to trim the leaves using sharp, clean pruning shears or scissors.  

TOXICITY

The Peperomia Ginny is non-toxic to pets and children.
