Trade pilea for watermelon

I have a small Pilea peperomia or variegated string of hearts.
Looking to trade for watermelon peperomia.

I’m in So Cal.
Thanks!

I have a watermelon peperomia! I haven’t rooted it yet but if you’re open to a leaf cutting (you can propagate a few from it) then I would be open to a trade! :slight_smile: Let me know what ya think! I’m in Oklahoma.

Hi! I have never propagated a leaf cutting on a houseplant. I’m green to this.:grin: How long does it take to root?

Well, after I wrote that last night I got super inspired to pluck a leaf and give it a go. I did quite a bit of research and it looks like 1-2 months is the average response. Some say 1 month for the roots and another few weeks for the pups to form. Sooooo a LOOOOONG time! If you wanna wait and see if anyone has some rooted/pup leaves I totally get it! If you decide you wanna leaf swap just let me know! My girl has plenty of leaves for another round of some rooting!

Wow, I’m interested. I hear pilea leaves root but never pup. If you get a few pups from the leaf, please let me know. Thanks!

You got it! I’ll let you know if anything pops up! Hehehe! Pun intended!
