The Pilea is a self-propagator, meaning it produces sweet little babies or "pups" on it's own, which pop up from the soil surrounding the mother plant. The round leaves can grow to over 5" in diameter!
I love the story of this plant...A Norwegian missionary found this plant in 1946 in the Yunnan Province in Southern China, at the foot of the Himalayas. When he was expelled from the country, he brought the plant back to Norway where it was distributed from one friend to another, and eventually, all over the world as a houseplant!
Light: Bright, indirect light.
Water: Allow the top 2"-3" of the Pilea peperomioides' soil to dry between waterings. Typically, watering this plant once a week will suffice. Drooping leaves can be an indication that the plant is ready for water.
Pets: Pet friendly! NON-toxic
