The Dirt

The Cascading ruby is a trailing vine compared to other peperomias, and it grows slightly red vine-like stems with rounded succulent leaves. The stems extend over the edges of its pot making it a perfect hanging plant.

It doesn’t grow very tall, it reaches only a few inches in height, but the stems may reach several feet in length if you allow it to grow without pruning it.

Part Sun

This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.

Medium

Water once 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

It needs very little water and overwatering increases the risk of root rot. But since it isn’t technically a succulent, it needs more water than succulents do.

Repotting often may harm the plant. As it’s a slower grower, replanting shouldn’t be needed for a few years.

Prune to control growth, removing damaged foliage and large stems aids the overall health of your plant. Also, this is a good time to collect stems to propagate!
