Pilea Moon Valley


Botanical Name: Pilea Mollis

Pilea mollis is a species of flowering plant in the family Urticaceae. It is used as an ornamental plant, particularly the cultivar 'Moon Valley'. 

'Moon Valley' has a more upright habit than the species, which is a trailing plant. Its toothed, deeply textured leaves feature dark-red undersides. Clusters of tiny, pink-green flowers may appear in spring, but they are insignificant compared to the showy foliage.

LightModerate to bright light. Place your plant near a window, but away from direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves. 

Water: Allow water to drain when watering, then empty drainage tray. Allow the potting medium to dry out a bit between waterings; this guy won't tolerate soggy soil and may get root rot.
