How to look after me

  • Light


    I like indirect light but can also deal with light shade.

  • Water


    Allow the top of my compost to dry out in-between waterings.

  • Food


    Feed me once a month in spring and summer.

  • Climate


    I like being misted every few weeks and temperatures between 15-24°C.

  • Other Maintentance


    Give my leaves an occasional wipe to remove dust.

Things to look out for

  • Look Out

    Leaves facing in one direction

    Rotate me to ensure I get an even amount of light.
  • Look Out

    Yellow/dropping off leaves

    Older leaves will turn yellow and drop off, however, if the whole plant is yellow, check you are not over/under-watering.
  • Look Out

    Powdery, white patches on the leaves

    This is powdery mildew, it isn't fatal but can be unsightly; remove the affected leaves and try to improve air flow around your pilea.
