A few species have more attractive flowers such as the white, scented clusters of spikes produced by Peperomia fraseri from Ecuador.
Planting and care
Most Peperomia species can be relatively easily propagated from leaf cuttings, similar to the way African violets are propagated. Remove large leaves with their stalks (petioles) and bury in seedling starting soil. Use of a rooting hormone can increase odds of success. Place the cutting in a warm, bright place until new growth emerges.
Caring for Peperomia Orba
- If your peperomia plants are wilting, in spite of regular watering, the plant is likely not getting enough oxygen to the roots.
Typical uses of Peperomia Orba
Ornamental use: The Peperomia houseplant is an attractive addition to a desk, a table or as a member of your houseplant collection. Peperomia care is not difficult and Peperomia plants have a compact form that lets them occupy a small space wherever you choose to place them.
