Pilea Peperomioides

Pilea Peperomioides
The Pilea Peperomioides is a fantastic plant with numerous names, but we love it because of its round green leaves and the "pups" it creates—perfect for sharing with a friend or creating many new plants!
Bright, indirect light
Water thoroughly, but allow top 2 inches of soil to dry out before watering again.
Prefers 55°-85°F
Fertilize monthly during spring and summer with a liquid foliage fertilizer at half the recommended rate. Rotate the pot weekly to prevent the plant from reaching in one direction toward the light source. Underwatering causes wilting and/or curling leaves; overwatering causes yellowing leaves and/or black stems.
Safe for pets
Difficulty Level: Moderate
