Watermelon peperomia is the common name used for a popular species from the named Peperomia argyreia. Named watermelon for its similarity of appearance to the rind (skin) of a watermelon..
A native to South America the Peperomia argyreia is a small plant grown for its attractive leaves. They grow up to 12 inches tall and the mini watermelon peperomia only grows up to 6 inches. Because of their small bushy rosette appearance they’re best suited when grown outdoors as a ground cover or grouped together with other plants indoors.
Foliage: For the size of this plant as a whole the leaves are fairly large. These peltate leaves (stem attached centrally) are kind of oval in shape and display an outstanding mixture of green and silver stripes. The leaves have a fleshy feel to them that are attached to thin non-woody red stems.
Flowers: Non showy flowers can appear during summer on slim stalks (flower spikes) that are greenish in color. They are not even worth a mention if a grower is looking for attractiveness in flowers. They’re all about foliage.
Care level and growing: These are very easy to grow and can make a good plant choice for the beginner. Keeping to the basics of care instructions will allow these plants to thrive. Most important is enough light, no overwatering and cold conditions.
I would display them close to other plants that have similar care needs to help them look more attractive, otherwise they can look a bit isolated because of how small they’re. They can be placed in a planter and look great, but you will need to make sure other plants share the same care needs.
