This small plant, native to South America, is well admired for it's beautiful oval leaves with a watermelon-like pattern. A low growing plant, this one reaches a maximum size of 6 to 8 inches. 

Growing Conditions

  • Light: Prefers bright indirect light. Do not leave in direct sunlight - position it back away from your windows to avoid this. 
  • Water: Allow the top layer of soil to be throughly dry before watering. Allow the pot to drain completely. Better to error on the side of caution and underwater this plant. Do not overwater or let the roots sit in water or else root rot will set in.
  • Ideal Temperature: Prefers warmer conditions. Keep away from drafty windows, heat vents or air conditioners and maintain a room temperature between 16 - 30 °C.
  • Soil/Nutrients: Regular fast-draining potting soil or a peat based soil is best. Fertilize once a month during the spring and summer months with a diluted liquid fertilizer. Does not require frequent repotting. Once every 3 years to avoid bound roots and to allow for new soil.
