Q. 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

Q. 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?

Yes, peperomia can be propagated from a cutting. For information on how to root cuttings, please visit the following links:

Q. 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.

Q. Can I split a peperomia plant

I would like to have two smaller peperomia plants. Can I split mine into two? If so, is it ok to do it now in mid to late July?

Thank you for your assistance!

Dividing these will usually kill them. There are better ways to make copies of the plant that will have less risk. Leaves, stems, and pretty much anything that you take from the plant will root to create an exact copy of the plant.

Q. Black spots on pilea peperomia

I got my pilea about a month ago, I started seeing these tiny black spots. The plant sits on the east facing window and I water it about twice a week because it\’s quite hot.
Please tell me what i can do?

Is this planted, only, in peat moss? Or is there soil under that? They do best in a well draining organic potting mix. Make sure the container has plenty of drainage holes. They will not tolerate over watering at all.

They will not tolerate overfeeding, but peat will not have enough nutrients to sustain the plant. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/pilea-plants/pilea-chinese-money-plant-info.htm
