Caring for your Peperomia obtusifolia / Rubber Plant:

1. Proper Lighting: Peperomia obtusifolia thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Place your plant in a well-lit area, such as near an east or west-facing window, but avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves. This plant can also adapt to lower light conditions, but the growth may be slower.

2. Appropriate Pot and Soil: Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging and promote healthy root growth. Use a well-draining, high-quality potting mix containing perlite or pumice, which retains moisture and allows for proper aeration.

3. Watering: Water your Peperomia obtusifolia when the top 1-2 inches of soil feel dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, allowing the excess water to drain out. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. The plant prefers slightly moist soil but not soggy.

4. Temperature: Peperomia obtusifolia prefers temperatures between 60-80°F (16-27°C). Keep your plant away from drafts, air vents, or sudden temperature changes to ensure healthy growth.

5. Humidity: This plant enjoys moderate humidity levels. You can maintain proper humidity by placing a humidifier nearby or by misting the leaves regularly.

6. Fertilizing: Feed your Peperomia obtusifolia with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half-strength during the growing season (spring and summer). Fertilize once every 4-6 weeks to provide essential nutrients for optimal growth. Avoid fertilizing in the fall and winter months, as this is the plant’s dormant period.

7. Pruning and Maintenance: Prune your Peperomia obtusifolia to maintain its desired shape and size by trimming back any leggy or overly long stems. Remove any yellowing or damaged leaves to promote healthy growth. Additionally, wipe the leaves with a damp cloth occasionally to remove dust and maintain their glossy appearance.

By following these simple care tips, your Peperomia obtusifolia / Rubber Plant will thrive, providing you with a beautiful, low-maintenance addition to your home and a touch of tropical charm.

    Just got my Peperomia obtusifolia, or “Rubber Plant” a week ago. The plant arrived safely boxed, but no pot included, even though it is pictured with it in the product photo.
