Watermelon Pellonia

Sold out

Available In-Store Only


Watermelon Pellonia is a fast growing, thick-stemmed vine. It has dark green veins on medium green leaves that are heavily veined and puckered. 

This plant is often called the “Trailing Watermelon Begonia” (despite not being either a Begonia or a watermelon at all) for its Begonia-like asymmetrical leaf growth and deep watermelon rind colors.

Watermelon Pellonia is an easy to care for houseplant and looks great in a pot or hanging basket. It prefers bright, indirect light and moist (not wet) soil and can tolerate light shade.
