Have you met the Watermelon Peperomia?
This South American native plant is also known as Peperomia argyreia or the Watermelon Begonia, and its leaves have a distinct resemblance to the rind of a watermelon, with a deep green color and lighter green stripes. The Watermelon Peperomia is a slow-growing plant that typically reaches a height of 20-30 cm and is perfect for small spaces.
To care for your Watermelon Peperomia, provide it with bright, indirect sunlight and well-draining soil. Avoid overwatering, as the plant is susceptible to root rot. Water only when the top 2.5 cm of soil is dry to the touch.
This plant is an excellent addition to any indoor plant collection, thanks to its unique appearance and low-maintenance nature. It’s perfect for desks, shelves, or any other small spaces that could use a touch of green. You can even propagate it easily by taking stem cuttings and placing them in water until roots develop.
So, if you’re looking for a plant that’s easy to care for and has a striking appearance, the Watermelon Peperomia is a great choice!
