Peperomia Prostrata is a great plant for propagating. Like many other types of Peperomia plant, it takes little effort, the roots take very easily and they put out new leaves relatively quickly. So why not try it.
Just like many other types of Peperomia plant you simply need to take a cutting. Use scissors to cut your plant on the stem with several leaves in tact. You can then choose to either place your cutting into water or into soil.
If you opt for the water option you’ll be able to watch the roots grow through the glass which can be very exciting. Make sure you change the water regularly, at least once a week, to ensure growth. There are fantastic propagation stations online you can use or if you don’t want to order new equipment a glass or jar will also do the trick. Wait until the roots are around two inches long and then plant in soil. When you plant in soil you will want to water it a bit more than you usually would with this plant at first.
If you choose the soil option then it’s relatively easy. You simply take the cutting and place it into soil. You can put it in a fresh pot all to itself or you can add it to the pot that already has strands of turtle strings coming off it.
One important tip would be to make sure you take more than one cutting. Cuttings don’t always take and not all of them will grow roots. By taking several cuttings you will increase your chances of success as at least one cutting is bound to take.
