Peperomia Napoli Nights Propagation

Luckily propagating your Peperomia Napoli Nights is a very easy and normally pretty successful process, this is because you can just take simple cuttings!

How to Propagate a Peperomia Napoli Nights

The process for propagating your Peperomia Napoli Nights is about as easy as it gets. To start make sure that you have a healthy and mature parent plant, this give your a slightly higher success rate and will also lower the risk of causing problems with the starter plant.

Next, with some clean sharp shears or scissors, snip off some cuttings from the stems. Take these stems and submerge the bases in some water, these should start rooting pretty quickly. Once you have some leaves and a good healthy root ball go ahead and plant them into some good quality potting mix and continue care as normal.

Keep them away from direct light

Peperomia Napoli Nights plants shouldn’t be exposed to any direct sunlight as this can damage their incredible leaves. Instead you want medium to bright, indirect light.

Too much sunlight can cause dry and yellow patches on the leaves which are unfortunately irreversible.

Be careful not to overwater

Peperomia Napoli Nights are quite sensitive to overwatering so you want to make sure that there is enough time for the soil to dry out. This depends very much on the time of year and your home but we recommend once a week in summer and fortnightly in winter but this may need adjusting to fit your individual plant’s needs.

Waterlogged soil can very quickly cause root rot which leads to yellowing of the leaves and often a drooping plant.

However, if you aren’t watering enough, this can also dry out the leaves, causing them to turn brown and curl up.

Keep them out of the cold!

Peperomia Napoli Nights don’t like cold temperatures so you want to keep them in the warmer rooms fo your home. Make sure that they aren’t sat near any drafty windows or doors as the cold air from outside will shock and damage your Peperomia Napoli Nights.

Average humidity is fine for your Peperomia

You shouldn’t need to worry too much about humidity levels unless you have particularly dry air in your home in which case misting or a humidifier will help to give that boost.

Fertilise in the growing months only

You only want to be fertilising your Peperomia Napoli Nights once a month during spring and summer. Hold off completely during winter as your plant is dormant. We recommend using a water-soluble fertiliser at half strength to avoid any fertiliser burn which can show up as yellow patches and spots across the leaves.


Propagate your Peperomia Napoli Nights through stem cuttings

The most successful way of propagating a Peperomia Napoli Nights is through stem cuttings. Pop your cutting in fresh water and you should start to see new roots forming after a few weeks. This can take some time so be patient and make sure to change out the water regularly. Once the roots are a few centimetres long, it’s time to pot your cuttings in nutrient-rich potting mix.
