This plant enjoys a light and bright spot near a window, with filtered sunlight. It does not like direct sunlight. The raindrop peperomia likes humid conditions, but not too hot! It thrives in temps from 18 to 26 degrees C, and loves a spray of water around it’s leaves every now and then especially in the dryer months of the year. While this guy loves a regular watering, ensure the soil has dried for at least a day between watering, not just the top soil! A generous watering once a week should do the trick, make sure you don’t flood the roots, no one likes wet feet! Fertalize the plant often in summer, but leave in winter.
