The Watermelon Peperomia is a fun houseplant named for the leaves that incredibly resemble watermelon rind. As an indoor plant, it stays fairly compact making a great desktop, tabletop, or bedside plant. This Peperomia also considered low-maintenance and pet-safe, so it’s a great choice for beginners or as a gift. 

Size: 4-6” (pot diameter)

Scientific name: Peperomia argyreia (‘argyreia’ translating to ‘silvery’)

Common Names: Peperomia watermelon, Peperomia sandersii, Watermelon Begonia

Appearance: Smooth, shiny leaves with green and silvery green alternating stripes. The stems are purple and the plant stays small, reaching 6-10 inches in height. Slim, spike-like blooms can appear when conditions are favorable. 

Origin: South America

Care: Prefers a brightly lit spot with no direct sun exposure, but can tolerate lower levels of light too. Intolerant of overwatering, so allow the top half of soil to dry out before watering again.

Level of Simplicity: Easy

Toxicity: Considered safe & non-toxic (to cats, dogs, humans)

Benefits: Peperomia are known for air-purifying potential, and in some cultures symbolize luck.
