Care Information

  • Site

    Will tolerate low to bright indirect light but may get a little lanky in too low a light level. Likes it warm but not next to a radiator (as the common name suggests) 

  • Temperature

    Warm, try not to put it in a spot that drops under 16 celcius for too long.

  • Water

    It has a very delicate root system so leave it to dry slightly before giving it a good drink. Cut right back in winter and never let it sit in water.

  • Feeding

    Only feed it two or three times a year, Spring and summer. Slow growing so no need for too much.

  • Tip

    Watch out for any rotting leaves over winter, remove them quickly and cut back on watering.

Bright, colourful and like all the pepperomias very very interesting (There are over a 1000 species!). The burgandy red of the leaves of rosso is shown in the light underside and the dark top, otherworldy flower spires top off this lovely slow growing houseplant.
