We are so excited to be offering the variegated form of Pilea Pepeomiodies! They'll be happiest in bright indirect light and the soil should be allowed to mostly dry out between waterings.
Pot size: 13cm
Please note you may not receive the exact plant pictured, but one of a similar size and condition.
|Bright indirect light, especially if you want to maintain the variegation.||Bright indirect light - winter sun isn't as strong so it can handle more light.|
|Allow the soil to mostly dry out between watering.||Cut back on watering in the winter months.
|Can tolerate average household temperatures and humidity.||Try to keep away from draughts and central heating.
|Feed once a week or so in the growing season.||Do not feed in autumn or winter unless the plant is still actively growing.|
