Description for Pilea Mollis, Pilea Moon Valley

Avoid full sun. Use a peaty soil-based potting mix. Plants like high humidity, and appreciate humidified rooms or placement on a bed of wet pebbles. Water moderately in the growing season, and reduce watering in fall to late winter. Pinch stem tips as needed to keep plant compact.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Pilea mollis Moon Valley - - 0.50 to 1.00 feet easy to grow

Planting and care

The vining varieties require a support structure as some can get 15 feet tall. All plants prefer sun to light shade sites with well-draining and moderately fertile soil. Install the plant in the ground at the same level it was growing in the nursery pot. Most plants are grafted onto the common rootstock because of its superior hardiness.

Pot seems to be really small. DO I have to shift the plan to the bigger pot as it starts growing in a few months?
