Best Locations For Growing Rana Verde Peperomia
This verdant, nontoxic gem will thrive in any room with bright, indirect light and moderate humidity between 30% to 40%.
Rana Verde Peperomia Sunlight Requirements
While Rana Verde Peperomia does best in bright, indirect light, it can withstand medium to low light. If placed in a room with periods of bright, direct light, including rooms with south-facing and east-facing windows, set the plant a few feet away from the direct light source to prevent sunburn.
Rana Verde Peperomia Care
Rana Verde Peperomia prefers a soil that drains well so choose a loamy potting soil amended with perlite.
These plants are generally slow growing, so the need to repot is not as frequent as with other plant varieties. If you notice, however, that there is little room left for the roots to grow, simply choose another pot that is one to two inches bigger than the older one, and repot. Your plant will continue to thrive.
Want your Rana Verde Peperomia to be bigger? Want it to multiply? If you prefer a bushier plant, trim/pinch the growth tips, and if you want more Rana Verde Peperomia plants, simply place those cuttings in water and wait for the roots to grow approximately one to two inches. Then, plant them in another pot of soil and wait for your new plants to grow.
Watering Rana Verde Peperomia
Depending on the humidity of Rana Verde Peperomia’s location, this plant should be watered one time every week or two weeks. Allowing the soil to dry in between waterings will help prevent overwatering. To check the soil’s moisture, stick your finger one to two inches beneath the soil. If dry, then, water again. If not, wait another day or two to do another moisture check.
Feeding Rana Verde Peperomia
Rana Verde Peperomia should ideally be fertilized every two weeks with a balanced water-soluble fertilizer administered at half-strength during the growing season. The growing season for this house plant consists of the spring and summer months.
