Caring for Pilea
The Chinese money plant, as its name suggest, it’s naturally found in southern China at the foot of the Himalayas where there is a mild climate. Actually, it doesn’t require much maintainence.
Pilea is beginners firendly as the plant is fairly forgiving of neglect. But treat it well and it will reward you with fast growth, glossy green leaves and lots of babies at the base. It’s a great joy to receive these gifts.
The Chinese money plant will be happy being slightly dry, that is to say, it will not like to be kept damp. When you find that its leaves droop lower than usual and looks a little wilted, it’s telling you to water them. Water them once or twice a week in summer and every 2-3 weeks in winter.
When it comes to light, they prefer indirect light. Too much direct sunlight may burn the leaves, while too little light can cause the plant becoming rather straggly with sparse leaves and even turning yellow. It is a good idea to regularly rotate your plant so that it can grow evenly, creating a lovely round-form plant.
