Peperomia orba is a small semi-succulent plant in the Piperaceae family. It has bright green, teardrop-shaped leaves and may also be called teardrop peperomia orba or peperomia orba pixie lime. Like other plants in its family, peperomia orba prefers indirect sunlight. It can tolerate low light, but cannot withstand intense sunlight, so it’s best to not place it in front of a window.
Overwatering is the easiest way to kill an orba peperomia. It has thick, succulent-like leaves that store water to help it survive drought conditions. Its roots are delicate and rot easily when they’re too wet.
Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. If you stick your finger into the soil, it should feel dry at least halfway down.
