Care guide for Peperomia caperata 'Lima':

  1. Light: Prefer moderate, filtered light. Light that is too strong can burn the leaves, while light that is too weak can lead to slow growth and discoloration of the leaves. Place the plant in a bright place, but away from direct sunlight.

  2. Watering: Watering must be moderate. Allow the soil to partially dry between waterings. Peperomia caperata 'Cayenne' does not tolerate excessively wet soil, which can lead to rotting of the roots. Check the soil moisture before watering again.

  3. Humidity: Peperomia caperata prefers medium air humidity. Regular spraying of the leaves or placing the plant on a support with pebbles and water can help to maintain adequate humidity, especially during dry winters.

  4. Temperature: Peperomia caperata prefers warm temperatures, ideal being between 18°C ​​and 24°C. Avoid temperatures below 13°C and above 29°C.

  5. The soil: Peperomia caperata needs a well-drained and airy soil. A recommended mixture consists of 50% universal soil, 25% perlite and 25% vermiculite.

  6. Fertilization: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring-summer) with a diluted fertilizer, especially for indoor plants. Avoid over-fertilization that can damage the plant.
