Plant care

Give the Peperomia obtusifolia a light spot. Spray regularly with soft water (osmosis water). If the Peperomia obtusifolia is given enough light and moisture, the plant will grow quickly. Dry roots for a short time is no problem for this succulent-like plant, but it prefers slightly moist soil. Prune regularly as this plant grows quickly. Leaf cuttings can be placed back in the ground; a new plant grows out of this. Additional fertilization is not immediately necessary.
