To achieve the best results with Peperomia, plant in well-drained soil with a pH level of 6. Use low feed until root system is well-established. Then constant feed of 150 ppm with an occasional leaching of the soil with plain water. Do not allow soil to stay saturated. Epsom salts will add richness to the color of the foliage of Peperomia. For fast hanging baskets plant 7-10 plugs per 10in pot. Keep night temperature at 60 degrees.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
