guide to easy, indoor plants..The Kids Room Peperomia Argyreia (Common Name: Watermelon Peperomia) With its vibrant fruitlike foliage, the Watermelon Peperomia will brighten up any kid's room in a hanging basket. Ubiquitous in South America and the Caribbean, this tropical wonder likes a lot of light, but only needs to be watered sparingly.
Once the plants set fruit, support the burgeoning melons with slings, which can be made with cheesecloth, nylon stockings, or old T-shirts. If the sling completely covers the fruit, it provides protection from insects. In addition to saving space, trellising improves air circulation and helps prevent disease.
