Plant care

Put Pilea glauca in a bright spot, but not in direct bright sunlight. In a terrarium Pilea glauca can get by with artificial light. Make sure the terrarium is moist. Water the plant about 2 or 3 times a week, making sure the soil remains moist. Water should not stand at the roots for too long, as it can cause them to rot. Pilea glauca isn'T picky about soil types, choose a normal porous potting soil. Adding some plant nutrition to the water once every month promotes the growth.
