Peperomia Watermelon puts a pep in your step when starting out your green thumb. These plants are well-loved for their striped foliage that resembles the look of watermelon rinds.
Known for their easy-going, low care maintenance, watermelon plants are generally slow-growers. Place them on your desk and add a pop of green to your day.
In the springtime, you can prune its leggy stems to promote fuller growth. When re-potting, keep in mind that these plants prefer to be on tightly bound roots before transferring to another pot.
