Pilea Glauca Aquamarine aka Pilea Silver Baby Tears - 5" pot

Size Chart
Regular price $20.85

A low laying trailing plant, the dainty foliage of the Pilea Glauca is just about the sweetest we've seen. You need a bright spot without direct sun, and you'll want to turn the plant a couples times a week so that it evenly grows rather than stretching out and becoming leggy. Pilea needs to be watered differently during different times of the year. During spring and summer, the top quarter inch of the soil should be kept moist. During fall and winter, allow the top quarter inch of soil to dry out before watering again. You never want it to be sitting in water in the saucer. Pet Friendly! 

Pilea Glauca Aquamarine aka Silver Baby Tears 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!
