    Commonly called the watermelon peperomia (because the patterns on the foliage resemble those on the rind of a watermelon), the silver and green leaves form a decorative, dome-shaped cluster. A low-growing, ornamental house plant, it will look great when nestled amongst it's neighbours, or placed on a bright windowsill or ledge.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Keep it in a semi-shaded or bright spot with protection from direct sun and water moderately in summer - allowing the compost to get reasonably dry before repeating the process. Water sparingly in winter. Maintain temperatures above 10°C in winter.
