Trailing Watermelon Begonia
Name: Pellionia repens
AKA: Wavy watermelon begonia
Why we love it: Despite the common name for this plant, it is not a begonia at all. This plant is grown for its foliage which resembles the outside of a watermelon.
Light: Bright indirect light
Water: Allow the top 1/2 inch of soil to dry between watering. These begonias prefer higher humidity and also require pruning to maintain their compact growth pattern.
Pet Friendly? No, this plant is toxic to pets and people.
Plants are sold in their nursery pots. Ceramic pots and baskets are sold separately.
