Raindrop Peperomia is a plant that grows on the jungle floor and prefers cool, damp conditions. The large, heart-shaped leaves of Raindrop Peperomia are often confused with the flat, round leaves of the Chinese Money Plant. Both plants have similar growth and care needs, but they are scientifically classified as different plants. Peperomia polybotrya is also commonly called a Coin Plant or Coin-leaf Peperomia.

Best Locations For Growing Raindrop Peperomia

Tropical plants thrive in humid areas of the house, such as bathrooms or kitchens. These rooms also tend to have lower light levels that Peperomia does not mind. The compact size of the Raindrop Peperomia makes it easy to grow on a shelf or desktop where it can be appreciated close up. 

Raindrop Peperomia Sunlight Requirements

Raindrop Peperomia performs well in a container placed in an east- or west-facing window. The dark-green foliage will stay deep green with lower light levels, but bright indirect light will encourage flowering in the summer. Even though the flowers are small and unremarkable, they signal that the plant is growing in the right conditions.

Raindrop Peperomia Care

Pinching out old or dying stems is an excellent way to keep this plant compact and tidy. New growth will appear from the base quickly. Regular dusting with a damp cloth will shine the leaves and keep the air pores open. 

Watering Raindrop Peperomia

All Peperomias store extra moisture in their stems and leaves, making them more drought tolerant than other tropicals. This also makes them more likely to be overwatered and suffer from root rot. To prevent overwatering, allow the top 2-3 inches of soil to dry between waterings, and discard any standing water in a saucer or cache pot. 

These plants need high humidity levels above 50%. Use a portable humidifier or set the pot on a tray filled with 2-3 inches of pebbles and water. Try misting your plant with distilled water for added humidity. Do not use tap water, which contains salts and minerals that leave marks on the leaves.

Feeding Raindrop Peperomia

Fertilizing is only needed during the active growth period of spring and summer. Once a month, apply a balanced liquid feed. Choose a 1-1-2 or 10-10-10 ratio of NPK and dilute the formula to half the manufacturer's suggested amount. Peperomias slow their growth in the winter and do not require extra fertilizing.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
