Get to Know Watermelon Peperomia!


Watermelon Peperomia Plants have a compact growth habit, and their leaves are not only colorful but also have a shimmery appearance that is especially stunning when the sunlight catches them. Native to South America, watermelon peperomia are tropical plants that grow naturally in the rainforest understory, and adapt exceptionally well to indoor growing.


Allow the top couple inches of soil to dry out between watering and then water thoroughly. Watermelon peperomia are sensitive to both overwatering and underwatering and should not be allowed to dry out or be left sitting in water for an extended period of time.


Choose a location for your watermelon peperomia that receives bright to medium indirect light. They should not be exposed to prolonged periods of direct sunlight as their leaves are prone to burning.


Yes! This plant is pet friendly.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

Curling leaves are usually an indication that your plant is drying out too much, or that the leaves are getting too much direct sunlight.

Drooping leaves can indicate that your plant is thirsty and needs some water. Usually this is quickly fixed with a good watering.

The top cause of yellowing leaves on a watermelon peperomia is overwatering. Ensure that you are allowing the soil to dry slightly between watering and that you have proper drainage to avoid this. Pests can also result in yellowing leaves.

There are several reasons that your peperomia’s leaves may be turning brown including new environmental stress or changes, pest damage, lack of humidity, overwatering (if they are brown and mushy). Establish what reason your plant has brown leaves then you can follow course to remedy that.
