Best Locations For Growing Glabella Peperomia
This nontoxic gem can be placed safely in any room. Choose any area with bright, indirect light and moderate humidity.
Glabella Peperomia Sunlight Requirements
Glabella Peperomia does best in medium to bright, indirect light. Wherever you place your Glabella Peperomia, make sure that the light is not direct. Direct light can damage Glabella Peperomia’s leaves. As a result, this plant will do well in a north-facing or east-facing window. If your only option, however, is to place this lovely jewel in a room with south-facing and west-facing windows, do not fret. Simply place Glabella Peperomia a few feet away from the windows, protected from the direct sunlight, and it will still thrive.
Glabella Peperomia Care
Glabella Peperomia prefers a soil that drains well so choose a loamy potting soil amended with perlite.
Want your Glabella Peperomia to multiply? If you would like to generate more Glabella Peperomia plants, simply place 6-inch cuttings in water and wait for the roots to grow approximately one to two inches. Then, plant them in another pot of soil and wait for your new plants to grow.
As far as repotting is concerned? Since these plants are generally slow growing, the need to repot is not as frequent as with other plant varieties. If you notice, however, that your plant is becoming root-bound, choose a new pot that is one to two inches bigger than the older one, and repot. Your plant will continue to thrive.
Watering Glabella Peperomia
Depending on the humidity of Glabella Peperomia’s location, this plant may need to watered about one to two times per week; however, because Peperomias are susceptible to root rot, it is always wise to do a moisture check prior to watering. Stick your finger one to two inches down into the soil. If the soil is dry, then water again.
Feeding Glabella Peperomia
Glabella Peperomia should ideally be fertilized every 2 weeks with a balanced water-soluble formula.
