Named watermelon for its similarity of appearance to the rind (skin) of a watermelon. Peperomia are incredibly easy-going, low-care houseplants–great for beginners.
Light: Most important is to give the plant enough light, never over water and never expose them cold conditions. A bright room with the plant placed in a shaded spot is ideal, without direct sunlight. In their natural habitat they reside undercover within forests with some sun and shade so we need to try and replicate this. Sitting back from a west, east or even south facing window is best.
Water: It's important not to water these plants too much or underwater them. Over-watering can cause rot and under-watering will make them wilt. To get watering just about right, allow the soil to dry to the touch at the top and then water thoroughly, but much less during winter. Average indoor humidity should be fine. You can mist the leaves every now and again during summer months if the air becomes dry. Being around other indoor plants will improve humidity. You will not need to re-pot one of these very often as they quite like to be pot bound. After about 3 years you may need to move to a slightly bigger pot, to be done during spring. You can replace the top soil once very spring.
Non-toxic to people and pets.
