You can easily see how this plant earned its nickname, with glossy green striped leaves resembling watermelons hanging from bright red stalks. This guy is very easy to propagate from leaf cuttings, so you can grow lots of baby watermelons to share with your friends!
One of our pet friendly options for those of you with furry friends who like to nibble on your plants!
