Looking for a stunning and low-maintenance plant to brighten up your indoor space? Look no further than Peperomia Hope (Acorn peperomia) - known as Peperomia tetraphylla!  

This perennial hope plant is a true gem, with its unique round-shaped leaves, striking green and brown foliage, and easy-care nature. Whether you're an experienced plant parent or just starting out, this versatile beauty is sure to impress. Not only is it safe for both humans and pets, but it also thrives in partial shade with moderate watering needs.  

It is a delightful cultivar resulting from a cross between Peperomia deppeana and Peperomia quadrifolia, an interesting species of the Peperomia genus. A member of the Piperaceae family, this perennial epiphyte has beautiful trailing stems with small, semi-succulent round leaves. 

You can probably easily grow Peperomia plants if you've previously grown any other perennial plant species. Plus, if you are just starting out, you should be aware that many succulent species are neglect-tolerant, making them a great option for travelers or busy owners. Then, the Peperomia Hope is a great choice for you.  

Watering Needs 

Watering your Peperomia hope plant is important, especially during the spring and summer months. These hope plants need deep irrigation to keep the soil moist, but not too wet. Make sure you check the soil before watering, as these plants do not like to be waterlogged or soggy.  

Usually, watering once every two or three weeks is ample during the summer. In the winter, if it doesn't rain you still should only water your Peperomia plant less than once a month. If the plant doesn't receive enough moisture for an extended period of time, discoloration, pale stems, and browning can occur leading to stunted growth. In contrast, overwatering can cause root rot and fungal infection. 

Light Requirements 

Like most succulents, Peperomia tetraphylla loves lots of light. It is a type of plant that requires bright, indirect sunlight to thrive. When grown as a houseplant, it should be placed in the sunniest spot in your home in order to receive the six to eight hours of bright sunlight that it needs each day.  

This usually means placing the plant in a south or west-facing window or using a grow light to provide supplemental light. It can tolerate low light, but it may experience stunted growth, curled leaves, and faded colors. 

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs 

If you want to grow a gorgeous Peperomia hope plant - Peperomia tetraphylla, you'll need to make sure you have the right soil and fertilizers. You can make or buy a well-draining potting mix, or ideally use our specialized potting mix that contains over 10 natural substrates and mycorrhizae, that promote the development of a strong root system that helps your plants to thrive. As an alternative, you can create your own potting mix by combining equal portions of perlite, coarse sand, and potting soil. 

Just make sure that whatever you mix should drain well!  

When it comes to fertilizing, remember that less is more. A small amount of natural or organic fertilizer once a year in spring will do wonders for your plant's health and growth. Using 100% organic fertilizers also ensures that other beneficial compounds and microbes are added to the soil, without the use of harsh chemicals.   

Show your hope plant some love with awesome organic fertilizer and watch it thrive. 

Hardiness Zones & More 

The Peperomia tetraphylla hope plants are sensitive to both extreme heat and cold moderate temperatures. These are hardy plants, and the ideal temperature range is 65-75°F.  Most gardeners in the U.S. will want to keep their plant as an indoor houseplant or grow it in a greenhouse.
