Peperomia polybotrya ‘Raindrop’ makes a handsome houseplant with lovely green, thick, fleshy raindrop shaped leaves.
I find that Peperomia polybotrya ‘Raindrop’ is a versatile plant, that grows well both in semi shaded conditions and in areas where the plant experiences bright, but indirect light. My plants have grown well on an East facing window sill and in the centre of a slightly more shaded room.
I find that my Peperomia polybotrya ‘Raindrop’ plants always form naturally compact specimens. These aren’t exactly narrow plants, but they grow much taller in height than they spread widthwise; eventually growing to around 35cm (13.5 inches) tall and around 20cm (8 inches) wide.
Peperomia polybotrya ‘Raindrop’ is a tender plant that thrives in warm conditions. Don’t allow your plant to experience temperatures below 12C (53F). 14C (57F) to 26C (78F) is ideal.
I water my Peperomia polybotrya ‘Raindrop’ plants, then I make certain to allow the compost to almost dry out, before I water the plant again.
