Easy Care Guidelines

Here are some essential care guidelines to ensure your Peperomia Cubensis thrives:

  • Light: Place in bright, indirect light. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, it will flourish in bright, filtered sunlight.
  • Temperature: This tropical beauty enjoys warm temperatures between 18°C to 27°C. Avoid exposing it to drafts or cold; it prefers a consistent and warm environment.
  • Watering: Ensure that the uppermost inch of the soil is dry before proceeding with watering. Overwatering should be avoided.
  • Humidity: Keep it in a moderate to high humidity environment. Consider misting the plant regularly or placing a humidity tray nearby if your indoor environment is dry.
  • Soil and Potting: Use well-draining potting soil to ensure excess water does not accumulate around the roots. Select a pot with drainage holes to avoid waterlogged soil.
