Peperomia is a tropical perennial plant genus in the family Piperaceae. Peperomia plants are epiphytes—meaning their roots absorb moisture and nutrients from the air and water. Because of their small size and low maintenance, peperomias make good houseplants that are generally easy to care for and have minimal nutritional needs.

Light: Peperomia plants need medium to bright light to maintain their vibrant foliage colors. Morning light and filtered light are fine, or you can do 12 to 16 hours of artificial light. Insufficient light will result in fewer leaves, leaf drop, and drab coloration. Direct sun rays should be avoided, as they can burn the leaves.

Watering: The peperomia has succulent leaves that indicate that these plants don't need frequent watering to maintain vigor. Allow the surface of the soil to dry out between waterings. Keeping the peperomia on the dry side is better than saturating it.
