This specific variety is named after the watermelon for its similarity of appearance to the rind of a watermelon.

FERTILIZER: Once per month during the active growing season.
SOIL: Plants must have a well-draining soil medium to ensure the roots do not rot.
PROPAGATION: These plants propagate from leaf or stem cuttings.
