LIGHT: Watermelon Peperomia will be happiest in medium to bright light. Do not allow the direct sun to hit the foliage. If given too much light, the colors and patterns will fade. If not enough light, the leaves may become darker green.
WATER: Water thoroughly when the top inch to two inches of soil is dry to the touch. Allow the soil to dry out a bit between waterings. Always keep an eye on your plant–if the leaves droop or feel a bit thin, it may also be time to water.
FERTILIZE: Fertilize your Watermelon Peperomia once a month in the spring through summer using either a liquid or water-soluble indoor plant fertilizer at half strength. Always make sure the soil is damp before applying any plant food.
TOXICITY: The Watermelon Peperomia is non-toxic to pets and children.
