One unique aspect of Peperomia is that all their foliage purifies the air, according to NASA research
You should water a peperomia plant once the top 1-2 inches of the soil dries completely and then water the plant thoroughly. Overwatering is the number one problem of killing this plant. Signs of overwatering of peperomia plants can be rotting stalks, wilting or yellowing leaves, a heavy pot and waterlogged soil.
Peperomia plants do best in bright indirect light or filtered light. They cannot handle direct sun as it scorches their leaves. If the light provided is less sufficient, the plant tends to stretch a bit towards the light which is very noticeable.
