The Peperomia Watermelons’ natural coloring makes it a quirky but easily cared for addition to any collection. Its saucer-shaped leaves will grow up and compact, making it ideal for a table centerpiece, home office addition, or gift.

This peperomia grows as a dense groundcover in South American rainforests. The Peperomia Watermelon can be placed in low to indirect bright light, but too little light will cause colors to fade. It can tolerate a missed watering or two but prefers to be thoroughly watered when the soil volume is half dry.
