Peperomias come in all shapes and sizes but can easily be identified by their cord-like flower spike. They grow on the forest floor and only receive filtered sunlight. As such do best in bright-indirect light to medium-low light. They prefer to dry out between waterings. A tip to make sure you never overwater it is to gently squeeze the sides of the leaves before watering. If the leaves are still stiff, don't water it yet.
Peperomias can be propagated by splitting the plant or by leaf propagation. Stick a healthy leaf into damp soil and soon a little plant will emerge from the edge of it.
