Pilea Glauca Aquamarine

$12

Pilea Glauca Aquamarine is also known as Silver Sparkles plant, gray artillery plant, gray baby tears or pilea Aquamarine. As an 'artillery plant', when you water them, the stamens of their tiny flowers, which otherwise go unnoticed, suddenly burst open, throwing pollen into the air like fireworks.

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.
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.
