Hi planters, I'm doing Peperomia propagation right now and I see that people are saying that propagating this plant is very easy.

My question:
Is it okay if I put the soil into transparent plastic cup that doesn't have drainage? The soil mix I put is coco peat, roasted paddy skin (no idea what's it's called in english), perlite and a little potting soil. When I prep the mix, i just put a few drips of water just to make it a little moist.

My weather is: 30-35 degree celcius at day and around 26-30 at night.

It is OK, but not recommended. I would cut holes in the plastic cup because it is way too easy to drown the roots.

But, when I propagate peperomia, I use the plastic bag method. I put my cuttings in an inch or two of lightly moist soil in a ziploc bag, or other clear sealed container, and place in a warm spot that does not get any direct light. I refresh the CO2 every week by blowing up the bag with my breath. Usually, I get good roots going in 1-2 weeks on every single cutting.
I have found that coffee, tea, and rose can all agree on one thing... water everyday.

I did this on my tetrasperma and the leaf got soggy. My climate is 30-35 degree celcius during the day. And I'm in a tropical weather, should I do differently?
