About:

Peperomia ruby cascade is a vining plant with distinctive ruby-red leaves. It originates from tropical and subtropical rainforests in Central and South America. In the native environment, the peperomia plants often climb the trunks of trees or rocks, setting roots as they go. The ruby cascade variety is a popular addition to many houseplant collections, where it is grown most often in a hanging basket.

Recommended care instructions -

Light - Peperomia generally prefers to grow in partial shade. Avoid exposing the plants to direct afternoon sunlight, which can burn the foliage. Indoors, place them where they can receive bright, indirect light from a window. They can tolerate low-light situations, though the foliage might not be as vibrant. They also can do well growing under fluorescent lighting.

Soil - A loose, well-draining soil is key for peperomia plants. Opt for a houseplant potting mix with peat moss.

Water - These plants like regular watering but not to the point that the soil gets soggy. Allow the soil to dry to the touch in between waterings. And slightly cut back on watering in the late fall and winter when the plant is not actively growing.

Temperature and humidity - Peperomia plants typically do well in room temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. But be sure to protect them from drafts and airflow from air-conditioning and heating vents, which can cause extreme temperature fluctuations. Moreover, they prefer moderate to high humidity levels. To raise humidity, you can mist the leaves or set the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water, as long as the bottom of the pot doesn’t touch the water.
Fertilizer - fertilize every other week during the growing season (spring to fall) with a diluted liquid fertilizer, or use slow-release fertilizer pellets at the beginning of the growing season. Do not fertilize in the winter.
