Pilea Depressa - 5" pot

Size Chart
Regular price $23.85

Is absolutely adorable, look at those tiny but thick leaves and scalloped edges! This one thrives in bright indirect sunlight and can even tolerate some direct morning sunshine. Water when the soil is dry about halfway down. Because this foliage is very compact on the soil it is sometimes easier to bottom water. Fill a bowl with water and sit the plant in it for about 15 min so it can absorb through the drainage hole. If you're really nice to it you might even seen some cute, white flowers bloom! Pet friendly.

Pilea Depressa comes in a 5" plastic growers pot, plant height ranges around 6" from the base of the pot and the tendrils are hanging about an 1" down from the rim of the pot.

Care Level: Easy / Beginners
Lighting : Bright, indirect
Water: When top layer of soil is dry
Pets: Pet friendly

Pilea Overview

Pileas, like TikTok stars, are really enjoying their stardom in the spotlight. Also known as a Coin Plant, UFO Plant, Friendship Plant and Chinese Money Plant, Pileas are native to Southern China at the foot of the Himalayas and are part of the stinging-nettle family, Urticaceae. Fortunately, Pileas don’t sting. Unfortunately, they don’t grow money. The Pilea didn’t get its due attention until the mid 1900s and finally hit its stride in the late 2010s. You’ll see Pileas on everyone’s social media (re: #pileababy and #pilealovers), your colleagues’ desk, and at the impulse section of a fruit stand. They’re super easy-going and are almost comical in the way they look, which is probably why they’re known as the “Pass it on Friendship Plant”. Welcome to the big leagues, Pilea!

One of the Most Beautiful Plants!

I’m a first-time plant owner and didn’t think I’d be able to take care of this plant too well but it has visibly grown so much in just a few weeks and I still have it inside the original pot it came in! There’s been no problems with it whatsoever and is perfect for anyone just getting into plants.

Lovely Plant

This plant is thriving on my north facing window sill! I just love it!
