  • Re-pot your Pilea, or just change the soil, every two years for optimal health.

  • ​When re-potting your Pilea, use any
    all-purpose or tropical soil mixture
    with good drainage.

  • ​Do not be surprised if the soil beneath your Pilea is covered in roots; they are voracious growers. Those little sprouts that continuously pop up come from these roots.

  • No direct sunlight; your Pilea
    prefers medium light.

  • The low or moderate light of a North
    or East window 
    will work best. Use sheers or blinds if facing south or west windows.

  • Your Pilea can be brought outside
    to the patio in the summer but
    keep it in a shaded area.

  • Rotate your plant occasionally
    if it receives light from only one side
    so that it keeps a nice even shape.

This amazing plant requires very little maintenance and will keep on growing indefinitely if you follow these simple care instructions.

Its beautiful dark green leaves flourish from a single stem and eventually form a thick canopy. They’re very easily propagated by stem cuttings

so you can multiply your collection.

 

Here's the best music for your Pilea.

Follow our Spotify profile, play our tailor-made playlists and make your Pilea grow with the right vibes.

Did you know that playing music for your plants helps

boost their growth? It may seem like a strange thing to do,

but research suggests that vibrations from sound waves

stimulate growth factors.
