Pilea Bronze, aka Pilea Spruceana 'Bronze', is a tropical perennial known for its textured, bronze-red foliage. It is an attractive low-growing plant with a creeping habit, making it an excellent choice for a ground cover in a terrarium or as a trailing plant in a hanging basket. The leaves are oval in shape, displaying a metallic bronze tint with unique patterns of deep purplish-red veins.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Avoid placing your Bronze Pilea in direct sunlight, which can cause leaf scorching. Feed with a balanced houseplant fertilizer during the growing season for optimal growth.

Care Guide

How to take care of Pilea Bronze

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.

Meet the Pilea Bronze, an intriguing houseplant that encapsulates the beauty of change and adaptation.

The Pilea Bronze, or Pilea Spruceana Red “Bronze”, possesses shimmering bronze-tinted leaves that will bring a metallic pop to your houseplant collection. Its glimmering foliage, a stark contrast to the verdant green typically associated with houseplants, is a testament to the plant's adaptive spirit and the allure of change.

This radiant plant thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. The way it seeks and blossoms under the right illumination speaks volumes about our own need for nurturing environments that spur growth and transformation.

In terms of watering, the Pilea Bronze prefers to dry out between drinks, teaching us about balance and restraint in care, as well as the valuable lesson that sometimes, less truly is more.

As the Pilea Bronze matures, its metallic leaves will continue to grow and spread, providing a delightful display of vibrant life and energy that parallels our own journeys of growth and self-development.

Welcome the Pilea Bronze into your home. It’s not just a plant; it's a testament to adaptability, the power of change, and the splendour of diversity. Let it serve as a reminder that, with the right care and environment, we can flourish in our unique, beautiful ways.
