Pellionia pulchra is a common, fast growing species of Pellionia native to Asia. It is commonly known as the watermelon vine. It has variegated green leaves with a dark emerald venation. The coloration can intensify into a slight orange in proper lighting! It is a staple vine in the hobby. It does well in bright, indirect light and moderate to high humidity, but can tolerate dry spells well. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species.
All of our cuttings have adventitious, aerial roots. Our rooted specimens will have at least a few active roots and will be established plants. Our plants are grown in high humidity in terrariums and greenhouses, therefore may need acclimation to the average home humidity / environment. Please contact us for acclimation information if you are not planning to use this plant in a terrarium, greenhouse, or humid room.
