Pilea peperomioides.

  • We are so excited to bring these sustainably grown plants to you. 

    The plants are grown in a UK nursery, using peat free soil and in their very own biodegradable coir plant pot by the very talented Harriets Plants.   Completely plastic free!


    The Pilea peperomioides is also known as the pancake plant due to the shape of its leaves.  This is a fast growing house plant that is a lovely addition to any home.



    Will be happiest in bright in-direct light.  Avoid a spot where the sun hits the leaves but make sure its in a bright space as it loves the light.



    Weekly watering - always checking the top two inches have dried before watering again.  Water thoroughly as it enjoys a good soak but let dry out again before its next watering.


    Hard to kill?

    9/10 - An easy to care for plant thats fairly hard to kill.  Aim to keep in a bright spot in your home, don't over water and you'll get along just fine.


    How to pot.

    The coir pot is completely biodegradable.  We suggest keeping the plant in its coir pot for its first year.  These can sit inside decorative pots or directly onto a saucer.  The roots will start to grow through the pot so when you come to upgrade to a bigger size pot in spring you can add soil around the coir pot and it will continue to grow happily.

    If you do want to remove the coir pot make sure to do this carefully.   Cut the pot away, gently remove any roots that have attached and then pot into its new pot.  The coir pot can then be recycled as it is biodegradable.
