Watermelon Peperomia (Peperomia argyreia)
A South American native, it's fairly obvious how this outstanding plant got the name Watermelon Peperomia! Even the leaf stems are watermelon red to match the watermelon rind pattern of the leaves themselves!
Their compact habit and striking foliage make them an excellent desk plant for any office with a bit of natural light.
Water when the top 2-3cm of soil in the pot dries out, water less in winter. Very easy to care for plants!
These babies will grow happily in bright indirect light but the patterning on the foliage will be most striking when they are given just a little bit of shade.
They are currently approximately 10 -15 cm tall but will get to about 20x20 cm. They are little desk-sized pocket rockets!
