Common Names: Rubber plant, Radiator plant
Peperomias are an all around excellent plant to take home - low maintenance (good for new plant caretakers), low-light tolerant as their natural habitat is the rainforest understory, and non-toxic to your animal friends! In addition to these stellar qualities, peperomia come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you'll likely find one that is especially interesting to you. This variety gets its affectionate name from the way its leaves look like the rind of a watermelon. 'Watermelon' is beautiful with its satiny leaves ribbed with deep green and pinkish stems that make it so reminiscent of a favorite summer fruit!
Light: Shade Tolerant
Ease: Easy Breezy
Pet Friendly: Yes
Care: Peperomias are slow-growing and like to be slightly root bound, so you don't need to repot unless you see roots creeping out of the drainage holes of your pot.
