How to propagate Peperomia Tetraphylla

Peperomia Tetraphylla prefers loose, fertile and well-drained moist soil, and uses cuttage and plant division method for propagation. In the greenhouse with temperature control equipment, it can be carried out throughout the year. Here are details of how to propagate Peperomia Tetraphylla.

1.Cutting propagation of Peperomia Tetraphylla

(1) In April-May is appropriate. If in the greenhouse with temperature control equipment, it can be carried out throughout the year.

(2) Cutting substrate: it is the nutrient soil or river sand, clay carbon soil and other materials used for cutting. It is difficult to get the ideal cutting substrate under the condition of family cutting, so it is suggested to use the prepared and sterilized cutting substrate. Medium and coarse river sand is fine, but flush with water several times before use. Do not use river sand from sea sand and saline-alkali areas. They are not suitable for the growth of Flower plants.

(3) Select a strong top branch with a length of about 5cm as a cutting, and keep 1-2 leaves on the upper part. After the cut is dried, insert it into a wet sand bed. Alternatively, you can use a knife to cut a blade with a petiole. After a little drying, you can put it into a sand bed at an Angle and root it for 10-15 days.

2 Division propagation of Peperomia Tetraphylla

(1) Division propagation is mainly used for propagation of color-leaf varieties.

(2) Basin soil can be made by adding part of perlite or sand, leaf mould, peat soil and appropriate amounts of basal fertilizer.

(3) Top dressing should be applied once every half a month during the growing period. It is better to use water that has been put in the cistern for 1-2 days. Limit watering in winter.

(4) The temperature change directly affects the color of the leaves. The appropriate temperature of the colored leaves in winter is 18-20℃; The green leaves were about 15℃.

(5) Peperomia Tetraphylla is afraid of hot summer, so it can be put under the shade of cooling water, but we should pay attention that too hot and wet will cause the stems and leaves to become black rot.

(6) Set the place with sufficient light in winter. Avoid direct sunlight in summer. Change pots every 2 to 3 years.
