Peperomia (Peperomia caperata)
There are over 1000 varieties of Peperomia Plants and most are native to Central and South America. All Peperomia Plants, which belong to the Pepper Family, are semi- succulents with very similar care requirements. The leaves of Peperomia houseplants are thick and plump, and can be rippled, smooth, or shiny. The color of the leaves of a Peperomia Plant can be various shades of green, red, gray, and cream, The pattern on the leaves may be marbled, striped, or a solid color. Peperomia Plant flowers are tiny and inconsequential, growing in clusters on upright conical spikes. When small, Peperomia houseplants can be used in dish gardens and terrariums. Compact Peperomia Plants are ideal for tables, and some varieties make excellent hanging plants. Most Peperomia houseplants never grow taller than 12”-18.” The most popular Peperomia Plants used as houseplants are the caperata and the obtusifolia varieties. LIGHTING REQUIREMENTS: Peperomia Houseplants grow well in the bright indirect light provided by a west or east- facing window. Peperomia Plants even grow under fluorescent lights. Insufficient light causes the slow growing Peperomia Plant to stop growing all together. Direct sunlight burns the leaves of Peperomia Plants. CARE INSTRUCTIONS WATER: Allow the top 50% of the soil of Peperomia houseplants to dry out before watering. Over-watering, resulting in root-rot, is the main cause of serious Peperomia Plant problems. Peperomia houseplants should be watered from the bottom. This technique keeps Peperomia Plant leaves dry and helps prevent plant diseases. The thick leaves of Peperomia Plants hold water and allow the plant to withstand long periods without moisture. FERTILIZER: Fertilize Peperomia HousePlants monthly in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food at 1/2 the recommended strength. It’s not necessary to feed a Peperomia Plant in the fall and winter. TEMPERATURE: Warm temperatures between 60-80 degrees are best for Peperomia houseplants. Temperatures below 50-55 degrees and cold drafts from windows and doors damage Peperomia Plant leaves. HUMIDITY: Peperomia Plants are originally from the rain forests of Brazil and like a warm humid environment. FLOWERING: The flowers of Peperomia Plants are very small and inconsequential. It's the leaves of Peperomia Plants that are so interesting. PESTS: Houseplant pests such as Mealy Bugs and Aphids can be a problem for Peperomia Plants. DISEASES: Ringspot, a virus that marks the leaves of Peperomia Plants with unsightly round marks, develops because of the high humidity Peperomia Plants like. Since there is no good treatment for Ringspot plant disease, damaged leaves and even the entire infected plant may have to be thrown out. Keep the leaves of Peperomia HousePlants dry and provide good air circulation to prevent Ring Spot disease. SOIL: Use a well-aerated loose potting soil that drains well for Peperomia HousePlants.

Podocarpus Plant (Podocarpus macrophyllus)

A Podocarpus grows straight up with very little side branching unless it is actively pruned. This plant is relatively simple to care for and adapts well to various conditions. It is easily trained to be a bonsai or a topiary. When planted outside in the ground a Podocarpus grows quite large, but when used indoors or on the porch as a potted plant, it remains a small tree or shrub. LIGHTING REQUIREMENTS: A Podocarpus requires very bright indirect light. If it is not getting enough light the lower needles on the branches become large and elongated. CARE INSTRUCTIONS WATER: Keep the soil moist but not soggy; allow the top two inches to dry out before watering. Brown leaf tips or gray needles indicate over- watering. FERTILIZER: Feed a Podocarpus every two weeks in the spring and summer when it is actively growing. Use a plant food that is designed for acid loving plants such as Miracid at 1/2 the recommended strength. TEMPERATURE: Podocarpus prefer cool temperatures between 50-75 degrees.

If the leaves of a Polka Dot droop, they quickly perk up after a little water. FERTILIZER: A Polka Dot grows quickly.

LIGHTING REQUIREMENTS: Place a Stromanthe Plant in bright indirect light but no direct sun, a north or east facing window is best. CARE INSTRUCTIONS WATER: A Stromanthe Plant likes to be kept barely moist at all times. Be careful not to over-water a Stromanthe or the roots rot and the plant dies. In winter, allow the soil of a Stromanthe to dry out a little more, but never completely. FERTILIZER: Feed a Stromanthe every two weeks when the plant is producing new leaves, ususally from early spring to the end of fall. Always dilute the plant food for a Stromanthe to 1/2 the recommended strength. TEMPERATURE: Avoid placing a Stromanthe in a cold or hot draft, otherwise basic household temperatures are fine. HUMIDITY: A Stromanthe needs high humidity to keep its beautiful leaves looking good. If your house is dry, you need to place a Stromanthe on a wet pebble tray.

FLOWERING: A Stromanthe sanquinea produces reddish-orange flowers in the Spring. PESTS: Aphids are a plant pest problem for a Stromanthe and, if the humidity is very low, spider mites move in. DISEASES: The high humidity a Stromanthe plant requires encourages fungal plant diseases. SOIL: Use a light, quick-draining soil for a Stromanthe Plant, that retains moisture but drains well. A peat based potting soil is a good choice for a Stromanthe.

Schefflera (Schefflera actinophylla)
Schefflera houseplants, native to Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands, are often called Umbrella Trees because of their large, shiny, dark green leaves that drape down like the spokes of an umbrella. Each Schefflera leaf grows at the end of a long stem and consists of several smaller leaflets. Schefflera Plants usually have multiple trunks. The newer Amate variety of the Schefflera Plant, which is grown from a tissue culture, has larger glossier leaves. A Schefflera Amate houseplant requires less light, is more resistant to spider mite, has a better developed root system, and is very symmetrical and full. A Schefflera Amate Plant is a little more expensive than a regular Schefflera Plant, but well worth the extra cost. LIGHTING REQUIREMENTS: Schefflera houseplants do well in medium light, but grow faster and develop more leaves in bright indirect light. The Schefflera Amate variety needs less light than regular Schefflera houseplants. CARE INSTRUCTIONS WATER: Allow the top 25-30% of the soil to dry out before watering Schefflera houseplants. Green leaves drop off and new growth turns black when Schefflera Plants are over-watered. Yellow leaves indicate a Schefflera houseplant is being under-watered. FERTILIZER: Fertilize Schefflera houseplants monthly in the spring and summer when they are actively growing with a basic houseplant food at 1/2 the recommended strength. During the fall and winter feed Schefflera plants every other month but only if the plant is producing new leaves. TEMPERATURE: Schefflera houseplants prefer temperatures between 65-80 degrees. Schefflera Plants do not do well in temperatures below 55 degrees and should be kept away from cold drafts and heaters. HUMIDITY: Basic household humidity or higher is fine for Schefflera houseplants. If the air is very dry, place your Schefflera Plant on a tray of pebbles and water. Be sure the plant is sitting on the pebbles and not in the water. PESTS: Schefflera Plants are bothered by these houseplants pests: spider mites, Mealy Bugs, Aphids, scale, and Fungus Gnats. Insect prevention is always easier than treatment so examine the leaves of Schefflera houseplants every time you water. DISEASES: The houseplant diseases Leaf Spot and powdery mildew develop if the soil of a Schefflera Plant stays too wet or water frequently gets on the leaves. SOIL: Use a well-aerated fast-draining indoor potting soil for Schefflera houseplants.
