Peperomia Marble


Plant size: Medium (6″ nursery pot)

This is a great plant for beginners since they can be neglected and are drought tolerant. The leaves are oval disc-shaped and retain water, like a succulent. Peperomia comes in green with some accents of red or are marbled white.

The Dirt

Native to Mexico, South America, and the West Indies. Piperaceae was most likely derived from pipali which is a Sanskrit word that means long pepper. The long pepper refers to the Peperomia’s flowers, which resemble a tall slender spike. The flower is unique but it is the plants leaves that attract the most attention. They tend to not grow very quickly, so there is not a need to repot often or worry about pruning them. Peperomia rarely grow more than 12 inches in height, which makes them great for small spaces.


This plant likes a spot that gets low light or no direct sunlight at all, few plants are ok with this light condition. Pick a room with a north facing window, or a spot far from a bright window.


Water one a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.

Pet Friendly

Yay! This plant is not toxic to our furry friends (regardless, you don’t want them to chew on this beauty).

Care Tips

The more marbling the Peperomia has, the more it’ll need light to enhance that shade. Insufficient light may result in dull color and leaves dropping

If you overwater, the roots can rot since they mainly are used to anchor the plant. Not for retaining water

Their root system is small so they do retain water via their leaves, hence, removing any dust and misting them every other week is helpful
