To see me at my best

I love bright indirect light and moderate humidity, just make sure my leaves get good air flow and wipe them every so often.

Size guide

Width Height Diameter
25cm height, 15cm pot 30 25 15

Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

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.
