We are so excited to bring these sustainably grown plants to you.
The plants are grown in a UK nursery, using peat free soil and in their very own biodegradable coir plant pot by the very talented Harriets Plants. Completely plastic free!
The Peperomia 'Hope' is a lovely plant with round, succulent leaves that will trail downwards over time.
They like bright rooms position ideally positioned in a spot with indirect sunlight. They can tolerate morning and late afternoon sunlight but direct sunlight during the middle of the day will scorch their leaves.
Weekly watering - as this plant is a succulent you need to check the soil has dried thoroughly before giving it a good soak. This plant has a fairly short root system and will become very unhappy from overwatering.
Hard to kill?
7/10 - Light and humidity are important for this plant so most homes can accommodate this lovely plant as long as you're not too heavy handed on the watering you should get along just fine.
How to pot.
The coir pot is completely biodegradable. We suggest keeping the plant in its coir pot for its first year. These can sit inside decorative pots or directly onto a saucer. The roots will start to grow through the pot so when you come to upgrade to a bigger size pot in spring you can add soil around the coir pot and it will continue to grow happily.
If you do want to remove the coir pot make sure to do this carefully. Cut the pot away, gently remove any roots that have attached and then pot into its new pot. The coir pot can then be recycled as it is biodegradable.
