Plant care

Pilea involucrata likes a bight spot, but must absolutely be kept out of direct sunlight. If the plant is kept in a terrarium, Pilea involucrata likes it moist, optionally with some artificial light. Make sure this plant's soil is always a little moist. Standing water at the roots is bad for this plants, as it causes the roots to rot. Pilea involucrata isn't picky about soil types; a normal potting soil which lets moisture through easily is fine. Adding some plant nutrition to the water once every month promotes the growth.
