Peperomia argyreia is a really cool, unusual plant. The dark green stripes on the leaves have earned it the nickname of watermelon peperomia. The oval shape of the glossy, succulent leaves resembles the shape of a tear.

Watering: Allow at least 2/3 of the compost to dry between waterings while the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Reduce watering frequency significantly in winter when light levels are lower.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a balanced liquid fertilizer every few weeks from spring to autumn.

Troubleshooting: Peperomia Polybotrya is a succulent plant, and as such is very susceptible to overwatering. Better to keep it on the dry side.
