About: 

Peperomia Argyreia (Watermelon peperomia) is a beautiful houseplant with tear-drop shaped leaves boasting beautiful silver stripes and red stems.

Recommended care instructions - 

  • Light - Choose a location for your watermelon peperomia that receives bright to medium indirect light They should not be exposed to prolonged periods of direct sunlight as their leaves are prone to burning. While they can survive in lower light conditions, their leaves will be smaller and the growth will be more leggy.
  • Soil - These peperomia do well in most standard potting mixes as long as they are well-draining, but can also hold some moisture. Avoid soil that is formulated for plants that prefer a dryer soil like cacti and succulents as it won’t absorb enough water to sustain the plant. A 1:1 mixture of peat moss and perlite will also work for watermelon peperomia.
  • Water -  Allow the top couple inches of soil to dry out between watering and then water thoroughly. Watermelon peperomia are sensitive to both overwatering and under-watering and should not be allowed to dry out or be left sitting in water for an extended period of time.
  • Temperature and humidity - Watermelon peperomia do well in warm, slightly humid conditions. That being said, typical household temperatures and humidity levels are adequate for these tropical plants. Just ensure that your peperomia is kept away from vents or drafty windows that could dry out the air around the plant.
  • Fertiliser - These peperomia can benefit from regular fertilisation during the growing period. Use a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the spring and summer.
