Peperomia Rana Verde (translates to Green Frog in English) is an easy to care for semi-succulent and a member of the Piperaceae family, within the Peperomia genus. The species name is Peperomia Albovittata and Rana Verde is the hybrid name. The plant is a tropical perennial plant, native to Peru and Ecuador in South America. The leaves are deep green, small and rounded, with deep venation and a matte finish. It is happy in most comfortable household conditions – it does not need excessively high heat or humidity so it does well in the same conditions you find comfortable in your home.

 

Light:  Indoors it needs 6 to 8 hours of bright light, some of which can be direct sun. However, it is not a true succulent and will not tolerate very hot, full sun. Some sun in the morning or late afternoon will be fine but the majority of the light should be very bright indirect sun.

Water: It is best to test by sticking your finger into the pot (up to the second knuckle at least) to see if the soil is damp or dry. If it is dry, water and allow the water to drain away before you put the pot back on a saucer or into a cover pot. It is important to note that these plants will tolerate a little drought much better than overwatering so it is best to let them dry out well between watering.

Pets: Yes, pet friendly. Non toxic.
