Native to Peru and Ecuador, Peperomia Rana Verde, or Ripple Peperomia, is an evergreen hybrid plant. It is a combination of male and female Peperomia Albovittata cultivars. This plant has beautiful green leaves with deep venation, resembling small frogs. The name Rana Verde means “green frog” in Spanish.
This compact semi-succulent plant usually grows up to 8 inches in height. Its lush green foliage is very effective in purifying the indoor air.
In summer, Peperomia Rana Verde blooms tiny spike-like orange flowers. These flowers are less than an inch in length.
Peperomia Rana Verde loves bright, indirect sunlight. It needs at least a couple of hours of light daily. This plant can tolerate some direct morning sun, but it needs to be protected from intense direct sunlight.
Peperomia Rana Verde is a semi-succulent so is important not to overwater this plant to prevent root rot. Check the soil twice per week and only water when soil is dry to the touch. Drain well after each watering and water less in the winter.
The best soil for this plant is well-drained, porous potting soil that can promote healthy root development.
This plant grows best in normal room temperatures (between 65°F-75°F). This plant is not frost-tolerant and it does not grow well when the temperature drops below 50°F. This plant does not need a high humidity level, and if the environment is humid, you should cut back on the watering.
This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
