Your Pilea will do best in a bright, indirect sunny spot in your home. Even though this plant is part of the succulent family, do not place your Pilea in direct sunlight since it will scorch the leaves. In order to prevent your Pilea from growing lopsided, rotate it at least 2-3 times a week since it grows towards the sun. This plant can adapt to lower light areas, but the leaves will turn a darker green and the plant will spread out more.
Allow the soil to dry between waterings, as Pilea do not like soggy soil. Watch the leaves—when they start looking a tad droopy, it’s time to water your plant. In warmer weather, they need to be watered more frequently.
This plant does not require any extra humidity and does well in a drier environment.
Your Pilea will be happiest in normal household temperatures between 65-75 degrees. However, make sure that your Pilea does not sit near the heating vents in the winter, as it may drop its leaves.
For best results, use a general liquid houseplant fertilizer at half the recommended strength twice during the spring and summer.
If you notice white spots on your Pilea, they are most likely caused by salts and chemicals in your water. If you do not have a filtration system, leaving the tap water in an open container overnight before watering can help remove some of the chlorine and fluoride.
Pilea are generally non-toxic for humans and pets. However, when ingested in very large quantities, they can cause a mild digestive reaction.
