The Peperomia Raindrop is a very strong houseplant with fresh green drop-shaped leaves, hence the nickname. This plant is very similar to the well-known pancake plant, but the leaves of the Peperomia Raindrop are larger and thicker. The Peperomia comes originally from South America and has air-purifying qualities and is especially good at removing formaldehyde from the air. This harmful substance occurs in all households. According to research by NASA, a Peperomia can remove as much as 47% of the formaldehyde from the air! In Brazil, the country where the plant comes from, the Peperomia is a symbol of happiness and is often used “to buck someone up.”
The Peperomia Raindrop is popular since it is easy to care for and it helps to purify the air in your home. Even though the Peperomia Raindrop does not need much water, do not let it dry out completely. Water once a week in the summer. During the winter, reduce this by watering once every two weeks. Do not leave the plant in the water for too long. The Peperomia Raindrop can reach a height of about 30 centimeters. Furthermore, the Peperomia likes a spot with a little shade. Temperatures between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius are most ideal for the Peperomia Raindrop. Try to avoid direct sunlight. The Peperomia Raindrop can be poisonous when eaten in large quantities.
The Peperomia Raindrop will be delivered with a height of approximately 20-30 cm (including pot) in a pot with a diameter of 12 cm.
