About the plant:
Peperomia, or pepper plant, is a plant from the pepper family (yes, this includes black pepper). This species of argyreia comes from South America, and at first glance it is obvious why the plant is nicknamed watermelon - the silver leaves with green stripes will catch everyone's attention.

They are most naturally found in South and Central America, but a few species can also be found in Africa. More than 1,500 species have been recorded in tropical and subtropical regions. It is an epiphyte that is often found growing on rotting wood.

Although their shape, size and colors differ, in most cases it is an undemanding shrub-like plant. Its narrow and thin flower grows in the form of a spike. It is yellow in color and looks like a wax candle. The leaves are fleshy and smooth, and can be heart- or spear-shaped.

Approximate height of plant with pot: 20 cm / 25 cm

This is a tropical plant that requires increased humidity. You can mist it regularly.

mnozeni Propagation

The easiest way is propagation using leaves that can be rooted in water. It is also possible to use stem leaves or cuttings, which we stick into a mixture of peat and sand. We cover this with foil, which we remove from time to time and moisten the soil. After rooting, transplant into soil.

problemy Common problems

  • Overwatering: Too much water can cause root rot, yellowing and leaf drop.
  • Brown spots on leaves: Burning leaves from direct sunlight, watering with lime water.
  • The plant does not grow: We have to transplant the plant, soil without nutrients, not enough light.
  • Bugs, nematodes: We deal with special sprays.
