How To Propagate Peperomia

thumbnail

The Peperomia plant is a very easy plant to propagate. It is grown from the stem, leaf, or tip cuttings.

The rooting medium should be very light and airy, and the ends of the cutting should be dipped in a good quality rooting powder.

Simple, consistent care will produce healthy new plants quickly.

Choose the Right Rooting Mix

The best and simplest kind of soil to use as a Peperomia rooting mix is a half-and-half combination of perlite and peat moss.

This lightweight mixture is affordable and easy to come by and always works well when rooting the Peperomia plant.

Choose the Right Time of Year

The best time to propagate peperomia is in the springtime, just before the growing season begins.

It is also possible to take cuttings and root them in the autumn when you bring outdoor peperomia in for the winter.

What About Propagating With Peperomia Leaf Cuttings

To propagate peperomia using only leaf cuttings, simply choose a few healthy leaves and cut them off cleanly with a little bit of stem still attached.

Dip this bit of stem into rooting powder and then follow the instructions given above.

What About Growing Peperomia from Seeds?

While it is possible to grow peperomia from seed, this is certainly not the easiest or most advisable way.

If you want offspring from an existing variegated plant, you must grow from cuttings.

Growing from saved seed will result in a non-variegated plant.

If for some reason, you do not have access to a parent plant or you want a specific type of peperomia which is not available in your area, purchase seeds online.

Be careful to purchase from reputable sellers who have excellent reviews.

This can help ensure you are actually getting seeds for the type of Peperomia you wish to grow.

Follow packaging instructions carefully.
