Pilea Indoor plant

Pilea Peperomioides

Pilea Peperomioides in Eindhoven, Netherlands

This little plant began as just a two leaf cutting and quickly grew to a healthy plant.  Unfortunately the plant became too big for it’s pot, and so there was a lot of leaf drop.  Luckily, the plant was repotted in February and so now it looking healthy once again.  Advice on the care of this gorgeous indoor plant:

  • Make sure the plant always has bright but indirect light.
  • Turn the plant regularly – this ensure it doesn’t grow in a particular direction (unless that is what you are aiming for!)
  • Plenty of water – this plant has remained constantly moist
