  • Comes in a 4” nursery pot (plant can vary from picture) 
  • Botanical Name: Peperomia argyreia
  • Common Name(s): Watermelon Peperomia, Watermelon Begonia, 
  • Description: It is native to northern South America, including Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, and Venezuela. The plant is not closely related to either watermelons or begonias though! It only relates to the shape, markings and texture of the leaves. It has the potential to grow about 20 cm tall. It is a perennial with asymmetrical, fleshy, oval, green leaves, with curved silver stripes, and red stems. Tiny green flower spikes can appear in summer.

  • Care: Once the topsoil is dry to the touch, water thoroughly. This plant will probably have a very inconsistent watering schedule and that’s okay! Place your friend in a bright spot, but not in direct sunlight. It’s an excellent air purifier and pet friendly!
