Watermelon peperomia aka Peperomia argyreia is an herbaceous perennial native to South America (Brazil). The variegated rounded, fleshy leaves marked with silver and dark green stripes that resemble the markings of a watermelon earned the common name of “Watermelon peperomia.” It is one of the more popular Peperomia varieties. Like other peperomias, the Watermelon Peperomia is non-toxic, making it safe to keep around your furry friends.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day, like somewhere shady outside or inside behind a window.
The minimum light requirement for them is 3 - 6 feet away from the nearest light source. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. That usually takes about two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water like floppy, droop, or soft leaves.
They can live in any humidity condition.
If you decide to re-pot your Watermelon Peperomia, be careful not to give it too much room. This plant likes to be slightly root bound, so it is best to opt for a pot that seems a little bit too small. They are the house plant that's hard to kill and pet-friendly. Just remember do not overwater them. They tolerate low light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
