Napoli Nights Peperomia is a hybrid cultivar that is set apart from others by its dual-colored heart-shaped leaves. On one side, the leaves are grayish green, or almost silver, and on the other, reddish pink. This small, succulent-like plant is the perfect choice for any home or office in need of maximum appeal with minimal fuss. Moderately watered and maintained in temperatures above 61?, Napoli Nights Peperomia complements the color scheme and busy schedule of any home or office.
Best Locations For Growing Napoli Nights Peperomia
Any room with access to bright, indirect sunlight and moderate humidity will serve Napoli Nights Peperomia well. Since the plant can lose some of its color and detailed markings if left in direct sunlight for only a little while, finding a spot with access to bright, indirect light is key. Also, maintaining this lovely plant in a room with moderate humidity will prove beneficial. As far as people and pets are concerned, though, there really are no restrictions; this lovely plant is non-toxic to humans, dogs, and pets.
Napoli Nights Peperomia Sunlight Requirements
While Napoli Nights Peperomia does best in bright, indirect sunlight, it can withstand medium to low light, and, if you are given the choice, placing this plant near a window that faces the north or south will most benefit this verdant addition.
Napoli Nights Peperomia Care
Choose an aerated soil that drains well; Napoli Nights Peperomia does not do well in heavily moist soil.
Regarding size? If you prefer a bushier plant rather than a leggier one, trim/pinch the plant. And, if you want your plant to multiply? Use these same stem trimmings to propagate new plants. Simply place the cuttings in water; wait until the leaves begin to grow; and then plant the trimmings in another pot of soil.
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, simply choose a new pot that is one to two inches bigger than the older one, and repot. Your plant will continue to thrive.
Watering Napoli Nights Peperomia
Depending on the humidity of Peperomia’s location, this plant may require as infrequent of watering as one time per week or two weeks. Allowing the soil to dry in between waterings will help prevent overwatering. To check the soil’s moisture, stick your finger one or two inches down into the soil. If dry, then water again.
Feeding Napoli Nights Peperomia
Napoli Nights Peperomia should be fed with a diluted medium-strength fertilizer once a month during the spring and summer months only.
