Pellionia repens (Red Form), commonly called Trailing Watermelon Begonia, is an evergreen vining plant featuring dark green to black, slightly scalloped leaves with a red tint. The dark, smoky variegation completely covers most of the leaves, although a very thin band of green may show through. Sometimes the leaves will tinge pink or purple. They are carried on long, 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 (Red Form) can grow indoors as a houseplant. Plant in the back of a terrarium to create a striking effect.
