Pilea Moon Valley - 10cm pot
Pot diameter - 7cm
This plant requires indirect, but bright, sunlight a day. Do not permit this plant to be exposed to overly bright or direct sunlight. Too much sun will burn the leaves and cause the green parts to turn brown.
The Pilea plant needs to be watered differently during different times of the year. During spring and summer, the top quarter inch of the soil should be kept moist. During fall and winter, allow the entire soil to dry out before watering again. Do not permit water to stand in the saucer underneath the plant.
Pilea requires a year-round temperature between 60-75 ºF (15-23 ºC). It can tolerate short periods of time outside of this temperature range, but continued exposure will kill the plant.
Normal air humidity will please this plant. If your home is overly dry during the winter, mist the leaves every other day with plain water.
Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, such as 7-7-7 or 20-20-20. To prepare a fertilizing solution, mix 1 tablespoon of fertilizer with 1 gallon of water. Stop fertilizing during winter.
Toxic for cats and dogs.
