Baby Rubber Tree, Upright or Vine?
I read somewhere recently that Peperomia Obtusifolia can grow strong upwards, but also topple over & hang like vines. Almost like succulent vines. Does anyone let theirs dangle? How's it look? I ask because mine has started to fall over, & I'm not sure if I should stake it & see how tall it can grow, or let it hang & wobble to and fro 😉😂

1ft to light, direct

I would definitely like to know the answer to this. I staked up my variegated peperomia because it was starting to topple. didn't know they could dangle safely.
Peperomia don't like to be kept consistently moist, but be sure you're not underwatering your plant. Keep a consistent watering schedule–water when the top 2”-3” of the soil are dry. If you accidentally let your Peperomia's soil dry out completely, you may see leaves go limp, droop, and possibly drop.
I staked mine with a bamboo stick. It got too heavy on me as it grew.
I posted pictures so you could see.
Mine is on the floppy side. Next year, I'll repot it and hang it. (: I can't post any pictures because I'm surrounded by sleeping children. 😉 Best part of Saturdays.
ya I water mine only after its dried out a bit. I've even had to snooze Greg a few times, it's holding water well. But I don't let it get crazy dry either. So far no leaf drop, limp, or droop. Only the stem. It's grown so much since I first got it, so I think that's all it really is.
Aaww! think I'm gonna let future ones try to hang and see what happens. I picture it in my mind, & it looks cool.
For now, I staked it up with the original bamboo stakes it came with, it almost looks like a pre-teen wearing shoes too small! I'll post pics later 😉
