A Peperomia Serpens does not actually need that much care, in fact it often does better if it is left alone rather than being fussed over and cared for too much.
This is because Peperomia Serpens don’t really need to be watered all that often. They prefer to be left to dry out between waterings rather than being kept constantly moist like other plants.
One thing that could make this plant more burdensome to care for is that they tend to prefer things a bit more humid. Which means if you don’t have a humidifier or live in an environment with high humidity you might find yourself needing to mist this plant often. However they can do very well in moderate humidity, it’s dry and arid conditions that they tend to do worse in. So as long as the environment you’re living in isn’t too arid then you shouldn’t actually need to spend much time misting them.
Another great thing about this plant is that it won’t grow that big so you don’t need to spend lots of time tending to it and pruning it back. If you want to keep it neat or if you want to propagate the plant then that’s great but it’s not necessary. As they don’t grow very big its not very often that they need repotting. You might even find that you don’t need to repot this plant yearly and you can wait much longer than that.
Also once you’ve found a great place for your plant you’re not going to need to move it around all that often so basically the Peperomia Serpens is a plant that requires very little care for you unless you live in a dry region and even then you could just buy a humidifier.
