Peperomia Hope

Peperomia Hope comes from Central and South America and prefers high levels of water and humidity. Unlike other Peperomia varieties, Peperomia Hope is a trailing plant.  Its thick foliage grows on a long trailing vine, and is coin shaped and bright green with faint light green stripes. Like other trailing vines, it can be trained up a coir pole, across ceilings, or around stair rails. The young vines will first grow upwards, then will begin to trail.

Peperomia Hope is considered a good luck plant due to its coin shaped leaves, making it a great plant for gifting. Easy to look after, this plant is very popular for the houseplant beginners!

Temperature

The Peperomia Hope is an indoor pot plant and prefers warmer temperatures. It won’t like temperatures lower than 10°C. Ideal temperatures range between 16-26°C.

Light

Peperomia Hope enjoys bright, indirect light. Placing potted Peperomia ‘Hope’ plants in indirect sunlight ensures compact, healthy growth.
