Peperomia, 'Argyreia' (Watermelon)

Peperomia, 'Argyreia'  is commonly known as a Watermelon Peperomia because of its similarity of appearance to the rind (skin) of a watermelon. It's leaves are kind of oval in shape and display an outstanding mixture of green and silver stripes. These make a nice contrast to the red leaf stems. It only grows about 8 to 12 inches tall, so it's also easy to feature on shelves. These plants will get droopy when they’re thirsty and prefer to be bottom watered to avoid over watering and root rot.
