I have quite a few Seconds Watermelon Peperomia to go. Unfortunately I am no stranger to the struggle to grow these plants well and 'insta-perfect'. Well established plants that have good bones, just need more tlc and attention than I can give them. I have every faith with consistent care and feed these guys will thrive and be beautiful again.
The stunning Watermelon Peperomia is a must have in my opinion! Aptly named for its striking green and silver striped foliage that so closely resembles a watermelon.
Pot diameter: 7cm
Light: Peperomia grow best in bright, indirect light. Please ensure it is not placed in direct sunlight as this can burn the leaves and/or fade the bright colours of the foliage. They will grow in medium to low light however it will not thrive.
Watering: Most Peperomia like humid conditions. This can easily be achieved by placing the plant under a glass dome ect. Allow the plant to dry out between waterings (ideally allow at least the top inch of soil to dry out before watering). Water thoroughly, allow the water to drain completely and never leave the plant to stand in water.
Growth: Watermelon Peperomia can reach up to 30cm in width and height.
Other: Please keep me away from hot or cold drafts. Watermelon Peperomia need feeding regularly, they need extra calcium to keep producing perfect healthy leaves.
