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 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.
