Get to Know Pilea Plant!


It is grown primarily for its unique foliage. Although it can produce small, white flowers throughout the spring months, Pileas do not often flower when grown indoors. Learn how to grow this attractive houseplant.


Water your Pilea when the top 75% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.


Your Pilea prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sun may burn the leaves. In order to prevent your Pilea from growing lopsided, rotate it at least 2-3 times a week since it grows towards the sun. This plant can adapt to lower light areas, but the leaves will turn a darker green and the plant will spread out more.


Pilea are generally non-toxic for humans and pets. However, when ingested in very large quantities, they can cause a mild digestive reaction.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

CURLING LEAVES: When the leaves of a pancake plant curl up along the edges, it can be because the plant is not getting enough bright indirect light, because room temperatures are too high, or because the room humidity is too dry. Watering too much or too little can also cause this problem.

DISCOLORED LEAVES: It's quite common for the leaves on pilea plants to signal their displeasure over environmental problems by showing discoloration.
- Yellow or brown edges on leaves is often a sign that room humidity is too low.
- Browned leaves may result if your plant is getting too much direct sunlight.
- Yellowed leaves that eventually fall off indicate the plant is getting too much water.
