Natural Pest Control
Plant Daddies utilizes a chemical free pest solution in order to protect our plants future homes and pets.
We allow lady bugs to roam free in our greenhouse and on our plants.
You may receive a lady bug or two in your plants; they are non-invasive, healthy insects that will not harm your plants.
Peperomia plants grow well in the bright indirect light provided by a west or east-facing window. These plants can even grow under fluorescent lights. Insufficient light causes the slow-growing peperomia plant to stop growing altogether. Direct sunlight burns the leaves.
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. This technique keeps the leaves dry and helps prevent plant diseases. The thick leaves of peperomia plants hold water and allow the plant to withstand long periods without moisture.
Warm temperatures between 60°-80° F are best. Temperatures below 50°-55° F and cold drafts from windows and doors damage peperomia plant leaves.
