It’s also pet and kid friendly!

Best Locations For Growing Rosso Peperomia 

This is a great plant for just about any room or office. You can place it on your desk, at the end of a bookshelf, or on a kitchen counter. This plant is non-toxic, so you needn’t worry about your pets or children getting ahold of it.

Rosso Peperomia Sunlight Requirements

The Rosso Peperomia prefers bright indirect light. It can also do well in partial morning or evening sun, but it does not tolerate full direct sun. Too little light can cause your plant to grow slowly, while too much sun can scorch the leaves.

Rosso Peperomia Care

This plant does not tolerate extreme heat or cold. Keep it in a location that ranges between 55 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Use a well-draining potting mix. A cactus or succulent potting mix will do. Don’t repot until the roots begin to grow out of the drainage holes. Be careful while repotting, as the plant has extremely fragile, delicate roots.

You should prune your plant periodically to control its size and shape. The best time to prune is in the early springtime. 

Watering Rosso Peperomia

Do not allow your Rosso Peperomia to dry out, as its fragile roots cannot tolerate drought conditions. When the top several inches of soil are dry, give it a deep watering. Allow the water to soak through the roots, then tip out any excess water. Generally, you’ll need to water the plant every 7-10 days. Reduce watering significantly during the summer.

Your Rosso Peperomia will do well in standard household humidity levels. However, if it is especially hot or dry in your home, set your plant near a wet pebble tray or humidifier. 

Feeding Rosso Peperomia 

Choose a balanced 20-20-20 fertilizer for your Rosso Peperomia, using it at half the recommended strength on the label. During the growing season, fertilize it twice a month. During the fall and winter, only fertilize once a month.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

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.
