Identify Hanging Succulent

You have a picture on your page “hanging succulent plants” that I wish to identify. I had this plant and cannot find or identify it. It is not “string of hearts” nor is it “string of pearls.” It has succulent qualities, but may not actually be a succulent. The plant is actually featured on your page about succulent hanging plants, but I do not think it is listed below. Can you help me identify?

I found it! I called my local florist and they researched it and found out it is Peperomia prostrata. Here is a website that helps with care and identification! http://succulent-plant.com/families/piperaceae.html

Start a Peperomia From a Clipping

Can you start a peperomia from a clipping or a stem or is it started by seed? I was given a clipping of a Variegata pepperomia and I wanted to know if you can start a plant from that clipping?

How Do I Tell When My Peperomia Needs to Be Repotted

My peperomia plant is about ten years old and in the same soil. Lately I have notice the lower leaves have turned yellowish-green. It is still producing new leaves. I have cut back on the watering but I am now wondering if the lighting is too bright for it. Or could the roots be under oxygenated to cause the yellow colour.

If you do not have access to a good fertilizer, then repotting in the same pot, or in only a slightly bigger pot with fresh soil will help. Gently shake out the roots running under water if you can. This will help get all the old dirt out gently. Then replace with only SLIGHTLY moist soil. Try and get the crown back into the same position right above the soil level where it was before re-potting. After, water this in and top off the soil if needed.

If you have access to fertilizer, then you may not need to re-pot often.
