What you will get:
You will receive red stem pilea (Pilea glauca) plants growing in a 4" pot.
Red stem pilea (Pilea glauca) is a rare and trailing house plant and very easy to grow.
The plant looks cute and pretty because of its thin red stems with small round leaves along the stems. When full in the container, it forms a spheric looking on the top of the container with stems trailing down on the peripheral. It can be a great plant for hanging baskets. The plant may also be a ground cover for terrariums and bottle gardens. It may bloom all time during the year.
Red stem pilea is an easy-to-grow plant. The plant prefers well-draining soil which is either sandy or at a ratio of 1:2 if perlite and peat are used. The soil should be kept moist during the growing season and slightly dryer in the winter. Extra water may cause roots to rot. Red stem pilea likes high humidity. Misting during the dry season is beneficial to the plant's health. The plant thrives with bright indirect light and an optimal temperature range of 60 -70°F. It can be fed once a month with regular house plant food at a reduced amount.
