Peperomia argyreia

This plant is over here lookin' like a snack! But seriously—its resemblance to watermelon is uncanny. It's prized for its unique, silver-striped foliage and low maintenance care requirements.

Medium to bright indirect light.

SM: ~9" tall and a 4" pot.
MD: ~10" tall and a 6" pot.

Pro-tip: Can be propagated with leaf or stem cuttings. Cut a healthy piece and place it in soil or water. You should have a new plant within a few weeks. 

  • No sweat
  • Bright indirect light
  • Pet-friendly
  • Every week

Peppy Pepe

My Watermelon Peperomia is thriving in a room that has lots of natural but indirect light. I water her every one-two weeks depending on soil moisture.

Was so excited for this plant

I received this and two others for Mother’s Day. I was so disappointed that it came pretty banged up. It lost 6 big beautiful leaves and quite a few others have tears in them. I’m hoping it will pull through. This was one of my wish list plants :(

Beautiful plant

Shipping company unfortunately left the box on its side, instead of upright, during a light rainy day. Thankfully it wasn’t out all day but it was damp long enough for some leaves to turn black in some spots/areas. (Assuming it most likely wasn’t shipped to me in this condition) Most leaves were unfortunately affected to some degree. Other than the black spots, two leaves are unscathed and those two are beautiful! Black spots have since dried out. And the plant seems to be doing well!

Sorry to hear about the poor treatment from the shipping company! Looks like the plant is in good hands now, so it should begin to thrive and push out new, healthy leaves in no time. Be sure to let us know if you need any tips along the way. :-)
