Plant Care – Pilea peperomioides
Light: Place your Pilea peperomioides under bright, indirect sunlight and avoid direct sunlight as it will scorch its leaves and dry up. Place your plant near a window and make sure it receives filtered sunlight.
Water: Allow the top surface of the soil to dry up between watering the plant. We recommend watering it once a week or whenever necessary. Overwatering your Pilea can cause water beds, resulting in root problems. Above all, pair your plant with an aerated well-draining potting mix to avoid soggy soil. Pilea requires high humidity levels, so misting may be necessary depending on its environment.
Soil: The Pilea thrives in a well-draining potting mix.
Fertiliser: Fertilise with a general houseplant fertiliser. We recommend slow-release fertilisers, which can be purchased from our Fertiliser category.
Humidity Requirement: High
