|This is a patented variety of Pilea. It should grow well in most standard peat-based houseplant mixes and can be fertilized with a water soluble fertilizer intended for foliage plants. It does well in indirect, bright to medium light and should be drenched and then allowed to dry between waterings. This plant does best with plenty of humidity so you may need to either set it on a pebble tray or run a humidifier near it. Pinch it back to keep it bushy.
