Peperomia Marcello is relatively easy, compact, and attractive little plant to grow. These plants have intricate lime and neon coloured leaves, and a tolerance for a relatively wide range of conditions.
Although Peperomias are similar to consider as a type of succulent due to their thick, slightly succulent leaves - they generally prefer higher humidity and slightly more water than most succulents. In fact, these plants are native to South American rain forests, where they grow quite happily in the dappled light, cool understory of the rain forest. These conditions have prepared them to be an ideal houseplant!

Kokedama is roughly the size of a coconut.
Comes complete with a coaster, full care instructions and a gift box.
Low, medium and bright filtered light for this versatile fella, and can even be a happy camper under fluorescent lighting! Ideally brighter positions are best. Keep out of direct sun, especially in summer.
Through the warmer months, be sure to regularly water your kokedama - typically weekly.
In the winter months, allow to fully dry between watering, generally every 2-3 weeks.
Peperomia is susceptible to rot if over watered, so be sure to allow kokedama to dry between watering. Do not over water this plant.
HOW TO WATER
Fully submerge your kokedama in a bowl, sink or bucket. You may need to hold it under for a moment! Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes until kokedama feels heavy and full.
Alternatively, you can gently water from the top as you would a normal pot plant. Simply part any lower foliage to expose some soil and gently water. This method will also ensure the moss and twine wrap is prolonged.
It is important to gently squeeze out excess water from the kokedama by pressing between two hands, on the sides towards the base. This will ensure your kokedama does not stay waterlogged which will prevent conditions such as root rot, fungus gnats and mould. As the moss and twine are natural products they are biodegradable and as such, squeezing out the excess water will prevent deterioration, prolonging the life of your kokedama.
