About the plant:
Peperomia, or pepper plant, is a plant from the pepper family (yes, this includes black pepper). Peperomia polybotrya Raindrop is one of the most popular plants of this genus. It has beautiful and massive green leaves in the shape of a raindrop, hence the name Raindrop.

The easiest way is propagation using leaves that can be rooted in water. It is also possible to use stem leaves or cuttings, which we stick into a mixture of peat and sand. We cover this with foil, which we remove from time to time and moisten the soil. After rooting, transplant into soil.

problemy Common problems

  • Overwatering: Too much water can cause root rot, yellowing and leaf drop.
  • Brown spots on leaves: Burning leaves from direct sunlight, watering with lime water.
  • The plant does not grow: We have to transplant the plant, soil without nutrients, not enough light.
  • Bugs, nematodes: We deal with special sprays.
