In the 1970s, the Pilea Peperomioides was already immensely popular. The plant has a retro look with its flat, round leaves that look a bit like pancakes or coins.
BOTANY | The roots of the Pilea Peperomioides lie in China, in the mountainous region of Yunnan province
PLANT CARE | The Pilea is easy to care for and easy to propagate. The plant regularly makes small cuttings that you can simply give your own pot. Very nice to do! Keep the soil slightly moist. 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.
