Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb. One of my favorite in door plants is the Peperomia. It has a nice rounded green leaf with a little touch of kind of a yellow margins in here. The Peperomia is a easy plant to grow. Now, it's actually related to the true pepper that you have in your, you know, for your pallet but this plant we think of as a foliage plant. It's kind of succulent light leaf and of course it branches nicely. It has a glossy foliage and it's easy to grow. I would put it into a good peati pearl like maybe sand type mix. You want to make sure that it drains well. Also on fertilizer in a high light area about every two months give it a little shot of indoor plant food. If it's in a low light area make sure you give it about every three to four months with a good plant food. It'll take near full sunlight but I usually like to have them in partial shade. If you got a porch, you got a patio, you got a condominium with a balcony, this plant is an ideal chose for you. The Peperomia, it's one of those plants that you are to keep in the back of your mind for your indoor garden. For on gardening, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb.
