    First purchase!

    I ordered this Watermelon Peperomia as part of my first purchase from this shop and I couldn’t be happier! It was packaged so carefully and arrived in perfect condition! I’ve been looking for a Watermelon Peperomia for over a year and haven’t been able to find any locally, so I was so excited to find this shop had them in stock! The leaves are big and beautiful and there’s also some new growth coming in! Can’t wait to buy from this shop again!
