These spectacular and interesting plants are part of the Peperomia family. Similar to a Pilea or succulent they have thick fleshy leaves for water storage, in the case of the Argyreia they are boldly striped to give the appearance of a watermelon. They grow quickly and are easy to propagate from but can be slightly harder to look after than a succulent so we recommend them for intermediate level plant parents. Semi shade to diffuse light is perfect for the Argyreia, too much direct sun will burn the leaves. They like to be watered little and often but are sensitive to over watering so we suggest a small amount twice a week and once a week misting to increase humidity. Approximate height 23 cm, pot diameter 10 cm.
