Considering this, how do you treat Peperomia Polybotrya?
Home care: Keep it in a semi-shaded or bright spot with protection from direct sun and water moderatly in summer - allowing the compost to get reasonably dry before repeating the process. Water sparingly in winter. Maintain temperatures above 10°C in winter.
why are the leaves falling off my Peperomia? Peperomia plants lose leaves when they are over watered. Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before you water. Over-watering, resulting in root-rot, is the main cause of serious peperomia plant problems. It's best to water these plants from the bottom.
Likewise, how often do you water a peperomia plant?
The peperomia does best when it is watered from its roots. The plant's soil should be dry before you water the plant again. Therefore, if you are growing it as a houseplant, let it sit in a pan of water for a few minutes every seven to 10 days.
Does Peperomia clean the air?
One unique aspect of Peperomia is that all that their foliage purifies the air, according to NASA research.
