Plant Know-How: Pilea glauca
Light: Pilea glauca grows best in medium to bright indirect light. Be sure to keep your plant from any direct sunlight as the small, delicate leaves will burn.
Water: Pilea glauca likes consistency in its watering. Water your plant when about half of the soil has gone dry. Pilea glauca may drop leaves if allowed to go completely dry too often. Your plant will also benefit from added humidity. You can achieve this by keeping it next to a humidifier, in a well lit bathroom, or on a pebble tray! This is a great plant to keep in a terrarium or under a cloche.
Did you know? Pilea glauca's silvery appearance is caused by tiny air pockets under the surface of the leaves. This is a type of variegation called blister or reflective variegation. Light reflects off of these air pockets causing them to look sparkly!
