Pellionia repens, commonly called Trailing Watermelon Begonia, is an evergreen vining plant featuring dark green, lanceolate leaves with a light green central band. The overlap between the two colors creates a whispy, smoky pattern which is very eye catching. Sometimes the leaves will tinge pink or purple. They are carried on long, pink stems which spill over, making this plant an excellent choice for hanging baskets and containers alike.
Prefers a well-drained, humus-rich soil with moderate water. When provided enough humidity, Pellionia repens can grow indoors as a houseplant. Plant in the back of a terrarium to create a striking effect.
