Pilea Moon Valley

$15

Pilea Involucrata Moon Valley or Pilea Mollis is native to Central and South America. Its common name, Pilea Moon Valley, is inspired by its deeply dimpled leaves – thought to look like the craters and valleys on the moon. The leaves are bushy in nature and are typically a bright yellow-green with dark copper veins.

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 3 - 6 feet away from the nearest light source. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. That usually takes about two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water like floppy, droop, or soft leaves.
They prefer a high humidity environment but can tolerate average home humidity.
Pilea grows toward the light. It’s not essential, but you can keep it growing nice and evenly (rather than all on one side) by rotating the pot every few days. Increase humidity if leaf edges crisp.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
