This plant is so wonderful, it has won awards for how easy it is to take care of. Though they are easy to maintain, Pilea Peperomioides are slow-growers (this is why they are difficult to find for sale!). It's native home is the Yunnan province of southern China, where it wasn't found and dispersed out of the country until the 1940s, or so folklore tells us. Traditions also say this plant will bring fortune and good luck into its owners life keep your eyes open for the goodness it could bring!
Pilea's are loved for the structural look and are somewhat sparse compared to some of our other plants. As much as we do our best to prepare your plant for a safe journey, they sometimes get a little knocked around in shipping. Because of this, we are unable to offer a refund on these plants. However don't be alarmed, if it does take some strain during travel, it will bounce back quickly and provide many years of green happiness to you and your home.
Comes in plastic pot measuring 4 inches in diameter.
For best care: Keep in bright light, but nothing too direct or warm, and water once a week (count slowly to 'four' while pouring water). For the best appearance, rotate the plant with each watering to get full sun exposure.
