5" Peperomia Argyreia aka Watermelon
Loves bright light and some direct sunlight. Water when the soil is completely dried out, underwater rather than over water this one. Non-Toxic to pets.
Peperomia Watermelon comes in a 5" plastic growers pot, plant height ranges 8" - 10" from the base of the pot.
Native to Mexico, South America and the West Indies, Peperomias, also known as Baby Rubber plants, Radiator plants or Shining Bush, have 1000+ known species in its deep, rooted ancestry.
Many Peperomias are known for their thick, fleshy leaves – you might be inclined to take a bite out of one, but we suggest you refrain from doing so. Despite having 1000 species, if you had a variety of Peperomias in a police line-up, a good chunk of the 1000 don’t have defining characteristics to distinguish them from each other even though they’re completely innocent.
For those that you can tell apart, you’ll see some with heart-shaped leaves, others almond and some oval. You might encounter green leaves, marbled, striped, or even varieties that possess grey or red foliage. That said, the one throughline with Peperomia plants are that they’re slow-growing, can be planted all-year long and are very low-maintenance – making them the perfect housewarming gift or office desk accoutrement.
Being able to pick your delivery day makes buying plants stress free! Lots of variety, great info about the plants and they all showed up in really great health. I’d buy more if I had the space!!
