Description

She has shimmery foliage for an indoor plant that could add elegance to any corner of your house. She's pretty unique. 

Your Watermelon Peperomia will be happiest in medium to bright indirect light. But hold up, no direct sunlight to hit her fancy foliage. If given too much light, her colours and patterns will fade.  If not enough light, her leaves may become darker green.

Water your Peperomia when the top 50%-75% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot. Or add a sustee to your order. They teach you when to water and when not to flood your potted plants. It's genius!

  • Quick Facts
  • Where to place me: Your Watermelon Peperomia will be happiest in medium to bright indirect light. Do not allow the direct sun to hit the foliage. If given too much light, the colours and patterns will fade.  If not enough light, the leaves may become darker green. Less is more with me. I'm kind of like a succulent as I store water in my leaves.

    I'm best for intermediate growers.

    I grow to: 20-30cm high, 30-50cm wide 

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous, and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Growing
  • Watering: Water your Peperomia when the top 50%-75% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer. 

    Feed: Fertilise your Watermelon Peperomia once a month in the spring through summer using either an organic liquid feed and half strength. Always make sure the soil is damp before applying any plant food.

    Tips and tricks
    If you decide to re-pot your Watermelon Peperomia, be careful not to give it too much room. This plant likes to slightly root bound, so it is best to opt for a pot that seems a little bit too small.

     

  • Delivery
  • Once your new plant babes are dispatched you will receive tracking information so you can keep an eye on its journey. Once in transit, packages usually take 2-10 business days to arrive. If you need it delivered ASAP we recommend upgrading to express post to get it there faster. 

    So your babes arrive in the best condition we hold off shipping if there is an upcoming public holiday or crazy weather event. We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants, and fast, free delivery to your door.
