Care Peperomia marmorata
These plants are perennial herbs. The Peperomia marmorata has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. Peperomia marmorata Is an evergreen; during winter iIt assumes a green colouring; the adult specimens are small in size and reach 20 cm high.

Temperatures Peperomia marmorataPosizione mezza ombra
Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to solar rays during the coolest hours of the day. Let's avoid exposing the The Peperomia marmorata to temperatures below 15įC. During late Spring we can place them outdoors, possibly sheltered by the wind.We suggest locating the vases in a pretty bright place, although avoiding direct sunlight, which could damage the foliage.

Irrigation Peperomia marmorataTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the the Peperomia marmorata every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. It is advisable to water the plants avoiding to leave water in the saucer, because stagnant water often develops fungal diseases.

Adversity Peperomia marmorata
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Substrate Peperomia marmorata
These plants favour soft and very well drained soils. We suggest, every 2-3 years to repot the plants, changing the soil.
