4" Peperomia Rana Verde (Pet friendly)
Water: For Peperomias, it is always better to water less than watering more. Use the “soak and dry” method and water thoroughly once and wait for it to dry completely before you water it again. To make sure that it is time to water your plant, check the soil with your finger, and make sure it is dry as deep as two inches. The watering needs become even less in winters as the leaves start to conserve even more water, so water it sparingly to make sure the soil does not get clogged.
Light: Partial shade works best for this particular specie but that does not mean that it doesn’t love bright lights. Put it under bright, indirect light or behind a shade cloth to protect it from any damage from the direct sunlight.
Soil: This plant loves a well-drained soil that has a pH of 6.1 to 7.3 (slightly acidic to neutral). It prefers a peat-based soil, meaning that the soil is a mix of two parts peat and one part perlite or sand. The basic focus should be that the soil drains well and does not accumulate any water.
A well-drained pot is one that is not glazed, allows evaporation, and contains holes that are big enough to drain out any excess water. Wet, water-clogged soil is a huge no-no for a Peperomia Rana Verde.
Toxic: Peperomia Rana Verde is declared to be non-toxic by the SPCA and is safe to be kept around pets. However, it is still a good idea to keep them out of the reach of animals and children because of the possibility of different kinds of chemicals, dust, and micro-organisms that could be stuck on the plant’s surface.
