Peperomia Magnoliifolia is a small houseplant with has an upright growth habit and large leaves. This compact plant spreads through adventitious brown stems to form mats or hummocks of glossy green leaves.. The pale green flowers are minute and packed tightly on slender spikes which sometime branch produced at the stem tips or from stems along the leaf joints. Flowering occurs throughout the year on mature plants. Fruits are small and have warty surfaces
Its preference for higher humidity levels and tendency to stay relatively compact make this plant a great choice for terrariums.
Peperomia do well in light to moderate light, such as found in a northern or east-facing window. They can be easily grown under fluorescent lights.
Keep the soil moist during the growing season and provide relatively high humidity through spraying or by setting the pot in a gravel tray.
A loose, well-drained, very rich potting mix is ideal.
Fertilize biweekly during the growing season with a diluted liquid fertilizer or use controlled-release fertilizer pellets at the beginning of the growing season.

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.
