Peperomia Polybotrya or the Peperomia Raindrop are similar to one of our favorite plants, the Money Plant or Pilea Peperomioides, except this rare variety is especially known for its larger thick, glossy "raindrop" shapes leaves.
Size: This plant is in a 4'' pot. The total size of the plant from the bottom of the pot to the top if the plant is about 6.5''-9''
Light: Bright to medium, indirect light but never in full light.
Water: Water regularly throughout the year letting the top 1-1.5'' of the soil dry in between waterings. Like succulents, they store water in their leaves so they are susceptible to over watering.
Humidity: This plant prefers higher humidity but don't need it to survive. Placing it near a humidifier or spraying it regularly will help it stay happy & healthy. At the very least, these plants do not want to be near a heating or cooling vent.
Temperature: They prefer to be in common household temperatures of 65-75 F.
Soil: They do best in a high-draining mix.
Fertilizing: We do not fertilize in the Winter. In the Spring-Fall, you could fertilize with a balanced indoor houseplant fertilizer. We use Green Thumb, but any well-balanced fertilizer should work.
Flower: A light-colored stamen.
Toxicity: Generally, these plants are considered to be pet-safe & people-safe but as always, please take precautions and keep your fur friends & young children away from your plant friends.
