Pilea peperomioides - Friendship Plant
***Available for local pickup only!!***
Friendship Plant has quilted leaves of apple green with deep bronze veins that make it a joy to grow indoors. The deeply textured leaves are the most notable aspect of this plant. Its name comes from how quickly cuttings will take root - perfect to share with friends and family!
Light: Moderate to bright light. Place your plant near a window, but away from direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves. Give Pilea involucrata a quarter turn every few days to expose all sides to sunlight.
Water: Use a pot with drainage holes and water thoroughly. Allow water to drain, then empty drainage tray. Allow the potting medium to dry out a bit between waterings; Friendship Plant won't tolerate soggy soil and may get root rot. Keep it slightly drier in winter, when growth is slower.
