Peperomia claveolens was cultured to ensure the ambient temperature between 18 ℃ and 28℃. During the growing period of Peperomia claveolens, nutrient supplementation can be done 2 or 3 times and loose soil can be selected to ensure that the soil is in a moist state. In summer, the light is strong, so shade protection should be done. In winter, indoor curing should be carried out to keep the temperature above 5℃.
Peperomia claveolens likes warm environments, and the suitable growth temperature is between 18 ℃ and 28℃. The suitable temperature will promote the continuous growth of Peperomia claveolens. peperomia claveolens should be maintained in a ventilated and breathable place to ensure sufficient light. In summer when the light is strong, shade treatment should be done, as strong light will cause sunburn of Peperomia claveolens.
During the growing period of Peperomia claveolens, the environmental humidity should be between 50 ~ 80%, which can be maintained on the balcony. Sufficient light can promote the red color of Peperomia claveolens to be more vivid. Peperomia claveolens can be fertilized for 2 or 3 times during the growing period. After the soil is dry, it can be watered and permeable to ensure the soil is in a moist state.
Peperomia claveolens enters the dormant stage in winter, so it needs to be moved to the room for curing. Peperomia claveolens is not cold-resistant, and the temperature below 5℃ will cause frostbite on the leaves. In winter, watering can be reduced, and the maintenance can be done in a well-ventilated place to increase air circulation, so as to ensure the smooth winter of Peperomia claveolens.
Peperomia claveolens has strong adaptability and does not require much for soil. The growth of Peperomia claveolens can be satisfied by selecting loose and fertile soil. Adding some small stones to the surface of the soil can enhance the permeability of the soil. In the rainy season, there is more rain, so drainage and dredging should be done to avoid water accumulation, which will cause fleshy root rot.
