Pilea require a bright well-lit space and can handle some direct sun. It won’t enjoy being in a shady low light spot.
Avoid over-watering this succulent, allow the soil to dry out very slightly in between waterings. You can test it with your fingertips to see how the soil feels. On average every 2-3 weeks will suffice, reducing that down during colder months. We advise feeding this plant with fertilizer once a month during the summer growing period.
Pilea love humidity! So mist it a few times a week to keep its glossy leaves happy.
