  • Peperomia Watermelon (Peperomia argyreia) is unique and attractive foliage that resembles a watermelon. It has waxy, green, and silver-striped leaves with short, reddish-brown stems. Peperomia is everyone’s favorite houseplant because it does not require much care and attention.
  • It is a lovely addition to your collection of plants, especially if you have it displayed in a beautiful pot. It is native to the tropical climate of South America, where it thrives in bright and indirect light and well-drained soil. Growing them is easy and low maintenance.
  • You can plant them in a pot and place them on a tabletop, where they can add modern decor to your space and a tropical accent to your home. Allow the soil to dry before watering them, and make sure there is an excellent draining hole to prevent root rot. Fertilizing them once a month during their growing season from spring to summer using a balanced liquid fertilizer will help them produce more leaves and grow faster.
  • The only way to propagate them is via leaf cuttings and division. You can grow them in USDA Hardiness Zones 10a-12b.

  2. None of the root clusters is growing. I believe the seller sent bad/rotten roots. Very disappointed. I won’t shop at this website again.

  3. The plants that were delivered looked nothing like the one advertised. Much much smaller, covered in mold. To be honest those looked nothing like a bamboo. Complete waste of money. I’m super disappointed. Will not use or recommend this platform.

  4. The roots you sent looked nothing like the picture: just sticks with no green growth. And no planting instructions/recommendations enclosed?!? Dang! You made it seem like yours was a site for gardeners. Won’t be ordering again.

  5. Photo does not show full cutting you’ll receive. What I received was tiny. Probably fine, but expectations were for a much larger cutting.

  8. I ❤️ my white pines and I planted them right way.
    It was a very fast delivery, and I would definitely recommend buying them for someone else 🙂👍

  10. Eastern White Pine saplings arrived today. Very healthy, bare roots and packaged safely. Much better quality than many online nurseries. We have them soaking in cold water and a couple aspirin before planting in outdoor pots tomorrow. After a couple years in the pots we’ll transfer them into the ground. We are at the bottom of planting zone 8 and in limestone laden Texas hill country soil. We are going to try these in well amended acidic soil and fingers cross they will grow into wonderful additions to the arbor diversification we are trying to create in our phase 2 forest regrowth.
