Peperomia rotundifolia is a new variety on the market and is one of the many Peperomia varieties available. Part of the Piperaceae Family, Peperomia ‘Pepperspot’ is native to the Amazon where it naturally grows under trees. It regarded as a trailing, vining or groundcover plant due to it long reddish stems that tend to intertwine and create an eye-catching effect. This allows the plant to cascade making it perfect for smaller hanging baskets.

They like bright indirect light or partial shade. Morning sun is also an option in winter months but during summer the leaves can burn and start to appear yellow. Humidity up to 80% is helpful however it is not essential. They prefer temperatures between 18°C - 24°C and likes fertilizing during growing months once every 3 weeks with a diluted balanced fertilizer.

Like most Peperomia’s, well-draining soil that is kept moist and not soggy is important for a happy and healthy plant. Pruning and removal of dead or dying stems helps to keep the plant in form. Peperomia ‘Pepperspot’ can be propagated in several ways. Two of the most common ways are to root the leaves with rooting hormone in soil or to root stems and/or leaves in water and then plant in soil.
