Peperomia puteolata is commonly known as the parallel peperomia, and has a similarity with watermelon peperomia in terms of the leaf pattern resembling the rind of a watermelon.
Native to South America, the Peperomia puteolata is a perennial plant species found covering forest grounds with its quick spreading nature. Although its growth habit is upright it's also slightly trailing in nature. Patterned leaves, rather than the non-showy flowers produced is their attractive feature. Small whorled ovate leaves patterned in dark green and white venation that look similar to the rind of watermelon fruit. These leaves only grow to a few centimeters in tenth and the soft but sort of woody looking 'reddish in color' stems may grow up to 45cm in height.
