Peperomia are small, succulent, herbaceous plants distributed throughout the tropics. They include shrubby upright forms, rosette forms and vines. They are all tolerant of low light situations.

Summer growers. Peperomias grow best in a well drained mix containing plenty of humus. Native to tropical areas they thrive in warm, humid conditions. They are prone to rot and should be watered sparingly especially in winter.
