Pilea Depressa Baby Tears

$12

Pilea depressa, the depressed clearweed, also sold as kiereweed, is a plant native to the Caribbean. It is a low growing, spreading plant with thick green leaves and pinkish stems. Pretty bright green foliage is round with an attractive scalloped edge. Tiny leaves reach about 1/4" wide and grow tight to the stem.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine, 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, like somewhere shady outside or inside behind a window.
The minimum light requirement for them is 0 - 3 feet away from the nearest light source. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that right next to a window. Like all succulents, they wouldn't die if they don't have enough light but would grow towards the light.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you do the watering.
They can live in any average home humidity condition.
During the summer months never let the soil dry out fully, but allow is to dry at least 2 inches down before you water deeply. Avoid soggy soil at all costs!
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
