The Pellionia pulchra, also known as the Watermelon Vine, Rainbow Vine, or Polynesian Ivy, is a beautiful and interesting houseplant prized for its unique foliage and trailing growth habit. Here’s a detailed description:


  • Leaves:
    • Long and oval-shaped, typically 2-5 cm (0.8-2 inches) in length.
    • Deep green with a striking network of lighter green veins, creating a “watermelon” pattern.
    • Smooth and slightly glossy texture.
  • Stems:
    • Reddish-brown in color, adding contrast to the green leaves.
    • Delicate and trailing, making the plant ideal for hanging baskets or allowing it to cascade over shelves.
  • Flowers:
    • Small and white, not particularly showy but can add a delicate touch.
    • Bloom sporadically throughout the year.

Growth Habit:

  • Trailing: Pellionia pulchra grows as a vine, making it suitable for hanging baskets, terrariums, or placed on a plant stand where it can cascade down.
  • Fast-growing: Under ideal conditions, it can grow quite quickly, so occasional trimming might be needed to maintain its desired shape.


  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct afternoon sun which can scorch the leaves.
  • Water: Likes to stay moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch.
  • Humidity: Thrives in moderate to high humidity. Misting the plant regularly or using a pebble tray can help increase humidity.
  • Soil: Well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter.
  • Temperature: Prefers warm temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C).
  • Fertilizer: Light feeding during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer is beneficial.


The Pellionia pulchra is a relatively easy-care plant that adds a touch of elegance and visual interest to any indoor space. Its vibrant foliage and trailing growth habit make it a popular choice for plant enthusiasts of all levels.
