  •   Peperomia Caperata, a tropical gem within the Piperaceae family, is widely recognized for its distinctive and rustic foliage. Commonly referred to as the ripple peperomia, this plant stands out with its deeply ridged, heart-shaped leaves, showcasing captivating shades ranging from dark green to burgundy. Its foliage color pattern may resemble Peperomia Watermelon, but the prominent ripped green veins set Caperata apart, showcasing its unique charm.

    A compact and slow-growing plant, Peperomia Caperata takes its time to reach a full height of approximately 8-12 inches, making it a perfect choice for tabletops, windowsills, terrariums, and small living spaces.

     Peperomias are easy-care and very tolerating plants, fitting in most indoor environments. Whether you're a beginner looking to cultivate your green thumb or an experienced grower seeking a visually captivating and undemanding plant, Peperomia Caperata can be a lovely addition to your indoor garden.

    This plant’s versatility and easy-going nature make it a meaningful, lively gift for any occasion.

  • Peperomia grows best in medium to bright, indirect light, and it does not tolerate low light conditions. This plant should be protected from intense, direct sunlight.

     This plant thrives in normal room temperatures (between 65°F-80°F) and humidity (30-50%). You can mist your plant and use a humidifier when the environment is too dry (humidity level falls below 40%).

    This plant is sensitive to both overwatering and underwatering. You should keep your plant slightly moist but not soaked. Check the soil weekly and only water when the topsoil is dry to the touch. Drain well after each watering.

    Caperata loves rich, well-draining soils that can retain some moisture. You can add some perlite to your general houseplant potting soil to increase drainage and aeration.

     This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

    Peperomia Caperata is non-toxic, but it is recommended that you keep it out of reach of children and pets to avoid possible allergic reactions and to protect your plant’s foliage.

    When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
  • It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
