Temperature / Humidity:
Due to it's native tropical regions the Coin Leaf Peperomia prefers room temperature conditions of 65 degrees Fahrenheit to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure to not expose this plant to temperature below this range due to it having a low temperature tolerance.
When watering the Peperomia Polybotrya it is best to use filtered or rainwater if possible. This plant stores water in it's stems and leaves meaning you don't have to water it too often. You should water the plant when the plant is almost completely dry or the top 2 inches of the soil are dry.

The best Peperomia Raindrop plant soil is one that'll hold on the moisture that it needs to grow, but also a fast draining soil mixture. A good soil mix is the African Violet or a commercial potting soil, then mix it with equal parts perlite and peat moss.
These plants produce white long flowers and produce a sweet fragrance, but it take a few years for them to grow to that stage. Unfortunately the flower does not last long and will eventually have to be removed.
A good high quality water soluble houseplant fertilizer mixed at half strength will keep your Peperomia Polybotrya growing, producing big leaves and overall happy. Make sure to only fertilize during the spring and summer and to not over fertilize as it can hurt the root.
