My 2 peperomias are flowering - sending out those long skinny green spikes all over the place. I'm thrilled at that since it's a sign of good health, but I'm wondering if there's anything specific I need to do with them. The peperomia obtusifolia especially ( and thanks again to Will Creed for identifying it for me ! ) seems to be growing nothing BUT flower spikes - some as long as 8" - and hasn't put out any new leaves in a while.

Should I let them do their own thing and wait until they go back to leaf production, or is there something else to be done ?

Congratulations! Let it bloom. Cut them off when they wilt. New leaves will grow in due time.

Thanks for your reply and congratulations, Will...

I'll confess to some pride at the way my plants have been flourishing, and I give credit for this to the great advice I received from everyone here.
