Wendy, a Watermelon Peperomia or Peperomia Argyreia, is one of the more funky members of the Peperomia family. She has succulent-like round leaves that are a rich green colour, topped with bright green-white stripes, which make her look a lot like you guessed it, a watermelon.
There are over 1,500 varieties of Peperomias, some of which more well known than others. Wendy is definitely one of the more sought-after members of the family, growing in popularity because of his unusual appearance.
