Hi there!

I got a peperomia maculosa on a rare plant festival yesterday in Leeds and 3 leaves fell off.

They feel pretty wilted but they still have some green so I was hoping maybe putting them in a closed container with some moist soil to keep humidity but I don’t know if that would be the best option.

What would you suggest?

Thank you!

I’ve used this kind of method a lot – place the cuttings on top of the soil in a small pot, or inserted a tiny bit, then put the whole thing into a bag.

Then the secret; blow into it to inflate it and add some CO2, then wait. That might work for this situation too. I would certainly try it, keeping close tabs on them. They may be too far gone if they’re already wilting, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?

Other tip; don’t overwater. Without roots, the leaves only need a small amount of moisture from the humidity.
