Like a scattering of silver sequins twinkling in the light, Pilea glaucophylla is a creeping ground coverer, making it a terrific trailer for those who want to add a fashionable statement or height to their interiors. This dazzling blanket of tiny, disc like leaves strings along on burgundy branching, contrasting against the silvery grey- green of the plant's foliage and delicately cascading over the sides of its pot.
For what it doesn’t grow in height, the plant makes up for in length with stems reaching lengths of up to 1 meter.
Underwatering worries! Witnessing rapid leaf loss, or have the leaves of your plant started to crisp and curl? Straighten things out with a watering.
Left High and Dry! Plants used in hanging displays that are higher up tend to dry out quicker due to rising dry air. A little spray will go a long way.
Stop Top Rot! Where possible, water this plant using the bottom-up method, by sitting the grow pot in a basin of water. Dense wet foliage is susceptible to rot.
