Why Choose This Product and Why Does It Make a Good Houseplant and Office Plant?

Plant Care Guide:

1. Light Requirements:

  • Foot Candle: 50-150 foot candles
  • Place your Pilea 'Aluminum' in low to moderate indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but avoid direct sunlight, which can harm the leaves.

2. Watering:

  • Allow the top inch of the soil to dry between waterings. Water thoroughly when needed, and ensure proper drainage to prevent overwatering.

3. Temperature and Humidity:

  • Maintain a temperature range of 65-75°F (18-24°C). The Aluminum Pilea is adaptable to average indoor humidity levels.

4. Soil and Fertilization:

  • Use a well-draining, lightweight potting mix. Fertilize your Pilea 'Aluminum' every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer.

5. Pruning and Maintenance:

  • Prune leggy or overgrown stems to encourage bushier growth. Gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and maintain their vibrant appearance.

6. Toxicity:

  • Pilea 'Aluminum' is non-toxic and safe for pets and children.

7. Pests:

  • Check for common pests like spider mites or mealybugs occasionally. If needed, treat and prevent them with our "Damn Bug! Organic Pesticide." You can find it here.
