My name’s Perperomia argyreia but people call me Peperomia "Watermelon" because of my striking resemblance to a watermelon! I'm native to South America grown for my attractive leaves. I grow up to 12 inches tall and the mini watermelon peperomia only grows up to 6 inches.
I’m in a 12cm pot and I’m 20cm in height.
I prefer a temperature between 18-24°C with average room humidity.
I don’t like soggy soil and direct sunlight.
LOOKING AFTER ME
I love average humidity with low to bright light levels. It's easier to water me from my base, this way I'll take up more water. Just don't forget to take me out otherwise I'll get root rot!
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m safe for pets :)
