Plant Care Guide for Peperomia obtusifolia "Baby Rubber Plant":

Watering:

  • Water your Baby Rubber Plant regularly, but allow the soil to dry slightly between watering.
  • Use room temperature water and avoid letting the plant sit in standing water, as this can cause root rot.
  • Reduce watering during the dormant season in fall and winter.

Light:

  • Place your Baby Rubber Plant in bright, indirect light, avoiding direct sunlight.
  • Provide some morning or evening sun, but avoid exposing the plant to strong midday sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.

Temperature:

  • Baby Rubber Plants prefer temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C).
  • Protect the plant from cold drafts, as temperatures below 60°F (15°C) can cause leaf drop.

Humidity:

  • Baby Rubber Plants prefer moderate to high humidity levels.
  • Increase humidity by using a humidifier, placing a tray of water near the plant, or grouping it with other plants.

Soil:

  • Use a well-draining soil mix consisting of equal parts of peat moss, perlite, and sand.
  • Repot the plant every 1-2 years to prevent the roots from becoming pot-bound.

Toxicity:

  • Baby Rubber Plants are non-toxic to humans and pets.

By following these care tips, your Peperomia obtusifolia "Baby Rubber Plant" can thrive and produce its beautiful and glossy foliage.
