The Pilea Peperomioides is a low stress plant. With a splash of water once a week and some organic PLNTS nutrition every two weeks you will make this pancake plant very happy. If you want a fuller plant, cut off some of the small side shoots in the pot and put them in water. When there are enough roots on the stem you can add them to the pot, digging a little hole for them. They will quickly root and grow!
Healthy Pilea with new leaves already growing in the first days. Impressed by the quality of the plants in that first order!
The very first time babyplant deceived me. Received this plant in a bad shape but I hoped to be able to take care of it. But unfortunately, the plant rotted and died definitively few days later. I don't know what happens this time, I've ordered alot from the site and all plants are always in very good shape.
