Peperomia Watermelon 4" Pot

Watermelon peperomia (Peperomia argyreia) is a stunning and super-trendy houseplant. It shows off beautiful tear-drop shaped green leaves with dramatic silver stripes. Red leaf stems (petioles) offer an attractive complement. 

Light: Grow your watermelon peperomia where it gets medium to bright light for best results. That means it should cast a medium to strong shadow much of the day in the spot where you grow it. Avoid direct afternoon sun through a window in hot climates, though, particularly in summer. It can suffer sunburn.  

Tip: Watermelon peperomia does not need natural sunlight to thrive. It enjoys both natural and artificial light.

Water: Give watermelon peperomia some water as the top half or so of the potting mix dries to the touch. It is rather sensitive to overwatering, so if you're in doubt about whether to give it a drink, it's usually best to wait. Because watermelon peperomia has relatively thick leaves, it tends to hold up well if it gets a little too dry. 

Humidity: It doesn't require high humidity like many houseplants, but can suffer brown leaf edges in desert-dry air.
