About Peperomia dolabriformis(Prayer Pepper)

Peperomia dolabriformis is a species of pepper in the Piperaceae family, native to Peru, with small, plump, fleshy leaves, longitudinal windows at the upper part of the leaf margins, and axe-like blades throughout, appearing green, pink, and so on in different lights, and overall looking like a group of pixies, jumping and dancing in the dreamy forest sunshine." Peperomia dolabriformis are relatively easy to care for and are suitable for home growing.

How to care for Peperomia dolabriformis(Prayer Pepper)

Sun/Temperature: Peperomia dolabriformis is tolerant of semi-shade. However, if it does not get enough light, the plant tends to overgrow and become loose. In full sun, its leaves will be more compactly arranged. His preferred temperature is 60℉ to 80℉.

Soil/Watering/Pot: It needs well-drained, well-aerated soil and pots with drainage holes, and cool-toned pots are more suited to its temperament. You need to make sure that the soil is dry before watering and to avoid standing water.

Repotting: You can change its pot and soil each spring, cutting off any overgrown or overlapping leaves as you do so.

Pests and Diseases: It is susceptible to leaf spot disease, which you can treat by spraying with Mancozeb liquid. If the room is not well ventilated, it is susceptible to mealybugs, which can be treated by spraying with Malthion.

We pack all shipments by hand. 

We have many years of experience shipping live succulents and cactus plants. We pay close attention to packing and have developed an expert shipping method. All succulents are packed and protected with polypropylene cotton (this is a stuffing used for dolls). We find this is the most effective material for protecting live plants while in transit. It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!
