PLANT CARE GUIDE
The Pilea will do well in just about any home or office. Place her on an end table or bookshelf, or even your desk at work. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.
The Pilea will thrive in bright, indirect sunlight but will easily adapt to low levels of sunlight as well. Avoid placing her in direct sun, as the rays can scorch the leaves.
Water when the top several inches of soil are dry, about every other week. Water with fresh water lightly and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots, then tip out any excess water. Keep the leaves dry. Water more frequently in the warmer months.
Does well at room temperature between 60°F - 77°F. Cold temperatures should be avoided.
Does well at normal (about 40% - 60%) humidity levels. If the air around the plant is too dry, use a humidifier or occasionally mist the plant to increase humidity.
The plant can live happily in the provided pot for up to a year. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have become overgrown. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil. You can also mix in perlite, sand, or gravel in with the soil to keep it from becoming too compact over time. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
