PILEA PEPEROMIOIDES 'MOJITO'

£40.00
Also known as Chinese Money Plant or Pancake Plant, Pilea Peperomioides is a very easy plant to take care of. Seriously! This one has a light green/mint variegation to it.
Size: D12cm x H25cm
*Decorative pot not included, please see our pot section for all available options
They grow very fast in ideal conditions and provide you with the cutest little babies that can be carefully removed and grown into a whole new plant. Alternatively, you can leave them and have a fuller, busier-looking Pilea.
As it grows upwards it naturally loses some of the base leaves. The main stem gets thicker and browner, resembling a small tree.

LOVING YOUR PLANT 

Pilea Peperomioides prefers bright, indirect light. Although it belongs to the succulent family, direct sunlight will burn its leaves. As the leaves follow the sun, rotating your plant every week will encourage even growth on all sides and give you a nice, rounded shape.

Water your plant when the soil is dry. Pileas don’t like too much water and will tell you when they need it, as the leaves begin to droop.

This plant loves moisture but is happy in average household humidity. If the room is dry, a way of keeping the humidity high is to group several plants together or by sitting them on a tray of pebbles and water. Mist it once a week - ideally with filtered, room temperature water as scale can create damage.

Make sure to clean all leaves with a dry cloth – dust can affect its absorption of light. During growing season, you can feed your plant once a month with a balanced fertiliser. If you notice small white dots on your leaves, they’re most likely due to salts and chemicals in your water - filtered water should help with this.
