Care tips

//

Light

Pilea likes a lot of light, keep it in a bright indirect light spot.

Watering

The soil needs to mostly dry out between waterings, with more watering required in warmer, sunnier weather. If the leaves start to look slightly droopy, that’s a sign that the plant needs water.

Temperature

 It can withstand temperatures as low as 10oC, thus if you are lucky to be in a tropic zone, you can even plant these outside all year. 

Propagation

This plant is fairly easy to propagate. It is said that even a leaf with a stem can root in the water. A happy plant will eventually send baby plants trhough the soil, which you can pluck out and seperate from the mother plant. If their roots aren’t well developed,  place it first in a glass of destilled water. If the little plantlets roots are established, simply plant it in the soil.

Potting

Well-draining potting soil, and a pot with drainage holes is necessary.
