    Compact and slow growing, peperomias make ideal candidates for terrariums and bottle gardens where space is limited. In the wild they are found colonising the floors of tropical rainforests - or nestling into the crooks of tree branches further up into the canopy. This plant is sent out as an unnamed and unlabelled peperomia, so the plant you receive may be a different variety to the one in the photo.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Keep it in a semi-shaded or bright spot with protection from direct sun and water regularly in summer - allowing the compost to get reasonably dry before repeating the process. Water sparingly in winter. Maintain temperatures above 10°C in winter.

Hello, My peperomia that I bought a year ago has vines that are nearing 18cm or so, and is still in the small pot it was supplied in. Should I repot? I cannot see roots emerging from the drainage holes. Also, should I trim the vines? Thank you!

Hello, thanks for getting in touch. I suggest you carefully remove the plant from the pot to take a good look at the roots. Do this over a tray to catch any lose compost and you're looking to see how well the root system has established. Ideally the root mass will occupy most of the rootball and the roots have not yet started to circle the pot - if so then definitely repot. Otherwise, you may wish to refresh the top layer of compost using houseplant compost or repot completely. You could trim the tips of the vines back to growing points (the point as which the leaves emerge) if you wish.

Which house plants you choose should depend on the environment you intend to keep them in, the space available, how much time you can spend preening them as well as your personal preference. For me, foliage house plants are the ticket, because they provid
