Named for its resemblance to the rind of a watermelon, this variety of peperomia typically maintains its compact size and bushy rosette appearance as it grows. Due to its small size, Dwarf Watermelon Peperomia looks great when placed amongst groups of other plants or tucked in with your current home decor. It is a great plant for beginners as they aren't temperamental.
- These plants need filtered or dappled sunlight. You would want to place them in a well-lit room with windows, but away from direct light. A sunny window with sheer curtains is also a good idea.
- Plants with medium or moderate water needs should be watered once or twice a week. They need moist soil throughout the growing season for optimum growth and flowering. Water these plants when the soil is dry to touch.
