What you will get:
You will receive one, two or three leaf cutting(s) from a peperomia watermelon (Peperomia argyreia) plant.
To facilitate your young plantlet growing, we also include options for 3" deep square pots with inner root guide grooves. These square pots allow your baby plants to grow faster individually without taking too much space and make the future transplantation easy.
Leaf cutting propagation is feasible for many plants but not easy for some of them. Peperomia watermelon is one of the easiest plants for this purpose. You may get a small number of plantlets by from a leaf petiole. However, if ya leaf is cut into sections (see the photo) and plant the sections in soil or sand, potentially, a new plantlet may grow out from each leaf vein.
Leaf propagation is not only very useful for obtain new plants but also very interest to watch new baby plants emerging from a leaf section and to grow into mature plants. Observation of this process can be an excellent learning project for young kids and a great fun for our plant lovers.
Rooting leaf section of peperomia watermelon is very easy. After cutting your leaf (or leaves) into sections, plant the sections with regular potting soil or sand. Using rooting hormone is optional. Keep your growing medium moist but not soggy. New baby plants will emerge in three to four weeks.
