So glad to have Nick from @phillyfoliage and Nick Pileggi on
Youtube join me for a discussion on Peperomia 101. This interview
happened during our Live Taping at Urban Jungle Philly this summer.
Peperomia are such a wonderful houseplant variety and such a
perfect plant for beginners. We are lucky to have Nick walk us
through the history, care and fun facts and troubleshooting tips
for our peperomia plant babies!
In this episode we learn:
- How Nick Pileggi began his career in plants with no
degree in horticulture and became the houseplant curator for Urban
Jungle Philly and the epic youtube planty personality we know
- How many varieties of Peperomia Nick owns (you’ll be
shocked!) and his favorites
- Peperomia IRL: where we find them in
- How many different varieties of Peperomia are known and
how they differ
- Best watering practices for Peperomia
- Best light for Peperomia
