Propagating a Peperomia Serpens is relatively easy to do just as it is with other Peperomia type plants.
You will need:
- Gardening gloves
- Sharp scissors
- Either a Jar
- Or a pot and potting mix
For the potting mix we would recommend a well balanced potting mix with added perlite.
So the good news is that propagating a Peperomia Serpens is relatively straightforward. The easiest method to do it to take a cutting of the plant. Use your sharp scissors to cut on the stem of the plant removing a section that has leaves in tact. Then you have two options. The first option is to place this cutting into a glass of water. Make sure that the cutting is propped up so that the leaves are not submerged. Be sure to change the water at least once a week but the more often the better and place it in a brightly lit area out of direct sunlight.
You will be pleasantly surprised to see how quickly roots start to grow using this method and you will be able to watch it happening through the glass. Once the roots are around 2 inches long then pot them in soil. Now normally you don’t want to water a Peperomia Serpens too often but as this cutting will have come straight from being submerged fully in water you should be able to give it a bit more than you would a fully grown or established plant.
Your other option is to take the cutting and pot it straight into a potting mix. This option is less commonly used because people enjoy watching the roots grow through the glass but it is still a good option for your plant.
