Pilea Peperomioides Plant Care
Allow the top 2”-3” of the Pilea Peperomioides' soil to dry between waterings. Typically, watering this plant once a week will suffice. Drooping leaves can be an indication that the plant is ready for water, but always test the soil to confirm your diagnosis.
Even though this plant is part of the succulent family, do not place your Pilea in direct sunlight since it will scorch the leaves. In order to prevent your Pilea from growing lopsided, rotate it at least 2-3 times a week since it grows towards the sun.
The heater and the air conditioning can cause the air to become drier: adjust your watering, based on the temperature and the amount of lighting in your home. Remember that Pilea loves humidity, so spray or mist the leaves twice a week if your home is on the dry side.
Once a month, you can “flush” your Pilea: water the plant 4-5 times in one sitting, each time letting all the water slowly drain out. This will help to wash out unnecessary salts and minerals that may have accumulated over time in the soil.
