There are many species of peperomia. Best growth occurs in an east window or with medium light intensity. Water when the soil surface is dry but let the soil dry more in winter. Emerald ripple and watermelon peperomia are easily overwatered. Ideal temperatures are 62 degrees at night and 85 degrees during the day. Resting plants prefer it cooler. Repot in March and fertilize very little. Less growth occurs under low humidity.

Propagation is by stem or leaf cuttings.
