The Pilea Glaucophylla is a decorative (hanging) plant with small round, grey-green leaves. The twigs have a red color which gives a beautiful contrast.
BOTANY | The roots of the Pilea Glaucophylla lie in China, in a mountainous area.
PLANT CARE | This Pilea needs some extra attention. Place it in a bright spot, but not in direct sunlight. It is a delicate plant that needs water more often. Keep the soil slightly moist and water regularly. Give organic plant food once a month during the growing season.
When you know where the plant originally comes from, you can imitate that environment at home or at work as closely as possible. Then your plant will feel completely at home in no time.
Be careful with over watering. With succulents in particular, an occasional splash of water is sufficient. When water remains at the bottom of the pot, root rot occurs and the plant usually does not survive this.
The kraft paper pot is waterproof for several weeks to months, depending on the water needs of the plant. The pot is 100% biodegradable and plastic-free. As soon as moisture spots appear in the soil, the pot is no longer watertight and it is best to repot the plant. After repotting, the pot can be handed in with the waste paper to be recycled.
