    • Light: Bright indirect sunlight. You'll notice their leaves will tend to get quite leggy as they stretch for the light.
    • Water: Water sparingly, only when the leaves feel thinner than usual or the top 2cm of soil is dry. Touch your plant and get to know what's normal and not! Leaves will easily and often break from the top of the stem when you are overwatering.
    • Temperature: Warm temperatures is a must to keep your watermelon happy. Keep the room between 20 and 30 degrees, and leaf deformities may happen when temperatures fluctuate. 
    • Soil: Peperomias are prone to root rot, so a well draining potting mix is essential (the water should run through in 10 seconds) and make sure the pot doesn't sit in any water.
    • Did you know: There are two varieties of Watermelon Peperomia - Argyreia and Verschaffeltii (aka dwarf or mini watermelon peperomia) - they're very similar and equally as cute!
