Ruby Glow Peperomia (Peperomia graveolens), also known as Glow or Ruby Peperomia, is a colorful, compact succulent plant primarily found in Ecuador. It has fleshy, green and red foliage in a curved canoe shape growing on thick, sturdy stems. Besides its striking good looks, it is an easy plant to grow. Once you provide it with the proper growing environment, you barely need to give it any maintenance.
Best Locations For Growing Ruby Glow Peperomia
Ruby Glow grows well when placed in plenty of bright indirect light, for example near an east-facing window. Ideal room temperatures range between 65 - 75 degrees F; avoid temperatures that are below 60 degrees.
Ruby Glow Peperomia Sunlight Requirements
Place Ruby Glow in bright indirect light for best growth. It may lose its vibrance in low light conditions.
Ruby Glow Peperomia Care
Grow Ruby Glow in humus-rich, well-draining soil in a pot with ample drainage holes. Add coconut coir, perlite, or coarse sand to the soil to improve the drainage capacity. It prefers to be a little pot-bound. You can add organic compost to the soil's top dressing for added nutrients. It’s normal for Ruby Glow Peperomia to lose its bottom leaves, but if you notice many leaves dropping, check the room's temperature, ensure it's not sitting near cold drafts, and scale back on fertilization.
Watering Ruby Glow Peperomia
Water Ruby Glow Peperomia when the soil feels dry to the touch. Their fleshy stems can hold onto water, so they are forgiving if you accidentally forget to water them once in a while. Cut back on watering during winter months.
Feeding Ruby Glow Peperomia
Use a balanced fertilizer cut to 1/2 the strength recommended on the label once every month or so during the growing season.
