The Variegated Peperomia obtusifolia plant is mildly toxic in nature. So, it is better to keep kids and pets away from mingling with it.
The thick fleshy leaves of the plant have a considerable drought tolerance. Water generously and wait for the soil to get dry. Remember, do not let the plant dry out to the point to wilting. Make sure you water right after the soil gets dry.
In summer, once a week is usually enough. On the other hand, lower temperature decreases the water requirement of the plant. Water sparingly and let it dry. About once in ten to fourteen days is enough to keep the plant alive in fall and winter.
An important part of watering strategy is not to water the foliage. Always water the soil and avoid keeping the leaves wet. This will keep the plant safe from many serious issues.
These plants can handle under-watering but are never tolerant of over-watering. So, make sure the soil is not soggy and the plant is not standing with wet feet.
