Pilea 'Greysy' | Pilea glauca 'Greysy'

I have tiny round leaves that come together to form a frothy mound. I am easy to care for and a good air purifier, so a good desk plant.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am native to Southern America.

Height/Growth

I am a trailing, ground cover plant so don't grow much more than 7 cm in height.

Light

I prefer bright, indirect light, but never in full sun as my leaves may get scorched.

Water

Keep my soil slightly moist while I am actively growing. In Winter, when growth slows, wait for the top two inches to dry before watering.

Temperature

Keep me warm; no lower than 14 degrees please.

Feeding

Feed me monthly in the spring and summer using a half-strength solution of a liquid houseplant type.

Grooming

I don't need much grooming but if a stem is suffering, you may want to help me along by cutting it back. Watch closely for spider mites and wipe them away with a damp cloth if you see any.

Care

I like humidity so please occasionally spray me with water.

Toxicity

Good news: I'm considered non-toxic so should be okay around pets, as long as they don't eat me whole!

Fact

I could be popped in a terranium if it was one with a drainage system, as I'm pretty non fussy and will spread well in an enclosed vessel. Click here to buy Pilea 'Greysy' or Sliver- leaved Artillery Plant.
