This Pilea depressa is native to the Caribbean. It's soft foliage has an exuberant frothiness that will create a carpet of green wherever it lands.
Please note, pot not included.
Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period. Water less frequently during colder months.
Requires plenty of indirect light but may suffer if it gets too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems/ low growth rate / loss of leaves.
- Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
- Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
- Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
- Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
