Platinum Peperomia, also known as Ivy-Leaf Pepper, Platinum, or Silver-leaf pepper, is an evergreen perennial native to tropical regions in South and Central America. Interesting leaf texture and gorgeous iridescent silvery foliage with reddish veins make Platinum Peperomia a highly sought-after houseplant.
Best Locations For Growing Platinum Peperomia
Tolerant of a variety of growing conditions, Platinum Peperomia does best in medium to bright indirect light, in temperatures between 65-80 degrees F with normal humidity. Place it in an east- or west-facing window in your home. Avoid severe temperature fluctuations like cold air drafts in winter or close proximity to a heating vent, as this could damage its leaves.
Platinum Peperomia Sunlight Requirements
Bright indirect light is ideal; direct sunlight can burn its leaves.
Platinum Peperomia Care
Plant this Peperomia in a well-aerated, well-draining potting mix specifically formulated for succulents or cacti, or potting soil that has ample amounts of orchid bark, perlite, and or coarse sand to promote drainage. The loose texture also helps the root system absorb oxygen and prevents root rot due to overwatering. Platinum Peperomia is a slow grower but would benefit from repotting even if it's just to refresh the soil every 2-3 years. This should be done in spring. Select a pot only slightly larger than the previous pot.
Watering Platinum Peperomia
Allow Platinum Peperomia’s soil to dry in between waterings. Its leaves will fall off when touched if this plant has been overwatered, which can lead to root rot, so always feel 2” down into the soil before watering. Water sparingly in winter. Signs of overwatering may include rotting stalks and yellowing leaves.
Feeding Platinum Peperomia
Peperomias require little fertilization. You can feed your Platinum Peperomia once a month during the growing season with a well-balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer.
