How to Care for your Raindrop Peperomia
SOIL: Since this plant stores water well it is best to use a fast draining soil mixture. African Violet soil is a great option, which you can easily find at stores even though I know that sounds really specific. If you want to make your own mix, use 50% perlite and 50% peat moss.
TEMPERATURE: The ideal temperature for this plant is 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit which is pretty easy considering most houses stay in that range. She will put up with higher temperatures in summer but if that is the case then keep her in more shaded conditions. Avoid drafty windows and AC units.
LIGHT: There are a few options for placement when it comes to the Raindrop Peperomia. Avoid placement in direct sun as it can burn the leaves. Directly in the north facing windows will do as the light is not strong. East and west facing windows you can place it close to the window. West light can be really hot so keep an eye out for burning and shift it a little farther away if need be. Southern light is extremely strong so place it at least a few feet away from the window. Mine is about 6 feet from a southern window. If you live in a very dim place you can always look into grow lights. If your plant is not getting enough light it will start stretching toward the light and become leggy. Shift it closer to a window and if its looks are bothering you, you can prune it.
