Pilea depressa is a bright green plant with small thick leaves. They are low growing, creeping plants with pairs of tiny, opposing round leaves on rigid stems that readily root at each node that contacts the soil.
Unlike other Pileas, this ground cover plant prefers lower humidity and drier soil.
Pilea are not hard plants to grow. They need bright, indirect light. Do not expose to direct summer sun. The pilea group likes high humidity and has fairly high water requirements. Don't let the soil dry out between waterings in the summer however allow getting slightly dry between watering.
Pileas grow best in smaller, 4" pots or planters where their roots will be somewhat restricted.They should be planted in a cocopeat based commercial potting mix with leaf mold and perlite .
Great for terrariums or as a ground cover in tropical climates.
