Peperomia plants are relatively easy to care for, making them the best choice for beginner plant owners. They are succulent-like plants, which means they store water in their leaves, so they don't need to be watered frequently. In fact, overwatering is more of a concern than underwatering for this plant. Aim to let the soil dry completely between waterings.
These plants are generally resistant to pests and diseases, which renders them an excellent choice for new plant parents who might be nervous about keeping their plants healthy. Additionally, they are not fast growers, so you won't have to worry about them outgrowing their pot too quickly.
