About Raindrop Peperomia


A Raindrop Peperomia, indeed known as peperomia polybotrya, is a lovely, easy-to-care-for houseplant recognized for its plump, glossy, shiny leaves that resemble a raindrop rolling down your window. The leaves are not just formed like a water droplet, but they are also meant to hold water, thus their thickness.

Humidity: Prefers high humidity

Temperature: 65 – 80° F (18 – 27° C)

Fertilizing: Indoor plant fertilizer diluted by half during the growing season

How To Propagate 


It is recommended to propagate during the growth season since you will have the maximum chance of success. You can either utilize leaf or stem cuttings.

1. Begin by removing a healthy leaf or stem/leaf combination using sterilized shears. Cut the leaf in half for leaf propagation.

2. Tap the stem base or the margins with rooting powder to promote root formation.

3. Fill a tray or tiny pot with the same soil mix as the mother plant. Create a tiny trench in the earth and plant the leaf, cut edge down, a centimeter into the soil OR plant the stem.

4. Water the cutting and pat the dirt down.

5. Cover the tray with another transparent plastic tray, seran wrap, or a plastic bag to produce a humid atmosphere for the best results. Uncover every few days to avoid fungal growth caused by excessive humidity.

6. Move the cutting to its permanent location once several leaves have formed. Because they have such shallow root systems, you must ensure that adequate roots have formed.

Foliage and Blooms

Peperomias don’t grow what looks like your typical flower.  They generate flower spikes that resemble greenish-white pointed branches sprouting from your plant. The spikes are covered with extremely little flowers. If your Peperomia Raindrop has a lot of these spikes, try trimming them off so they don't sap energy from the lovely leaves.

Growth Rate and Size


The Raindrop, like most other members of the Peperomia genus, grows slowly. It will grow to be around a foot (12 inches) tall in ideal circumstances, making it a very gorgeous little Pep!

Peperomia Raindrop is not hazardous to cats or dogs; nonetheless, even non-toxic plants can cause pain if consumed. 

Pests & Diseases


Red spider mites and mealy bugs are the most prevalent pests that can infest this plant. These will sap the vitality from the leaves, causing them to fall off. Keep the leaves clean to help avoid this, but if it does occur, neem oil is the solution.
