Watermelon Peperomia (Peperomia argyreia)

$34.00
Subscription Save

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.

Watering

Water when the top 2-3cm of soil in the pot dries out, water less in winter. Very easy to care for plants!

Position

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.

Managing growth

They are currently approximately 10 -15 cm tall but will get to about 20x20 cm. They are little desk-sized pocket rockets!

Greeting your Watermelon Peperomia

These plants are shipped in a 1.5L nursery pot that is wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in during transport. They will fit any pot from our Medium Pot Range.

Our special eco packaging

No Plant Stress

Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.

Stability Support

The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!

No Re-Potting

Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.

Fully Recyclable

The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
