This plant comes potted in a 5″ blush pink pot with rocks in the bottom for drainage.

The Watermelon Peperomia is one of the more rare peperomia varieties. Watermelon Peperomias like medium light.  That means it should cast a medium to strong shadow much of the day in the spot where you grow it. Avoid direct afternoon sun through a window in hot climates, though, particularly in summer. It can suffer sunburn.

Give watermelon peperomia some water as the top half or so of the potting mix dries to the touch. It is rather sensitive to overwatering, so if you’re in doubt about whether to give it a drink, it’s usually best to wait. Because watermelon peperomia has relatively thick leaves, it tends to hold up well if it gets a little too dry.
