    My Pilea ‘Dark Mystery’ arrived expertly packaged with very little damage. The root system is very healthy and is a very beautiful plant. I had never heard of Steve’s Leaves until I was watching a video, “Plant One on Me” and she received a package of beautiful plants from him. I’m hooked, will be ordering again.

    Beautiful healthy plant. Received just as pictured in the small pot photo. I love this Pilea because it tells me when it needs watered. The leaves will droop but it springs back quickly. I keep it potted similarly as my other Pileas so that I know when to water all. Now that I’ve learned their routine I haven’t let any of them get too dry. They are just a few feet away from a humidifier that keeps their room around 45% Rh. Arizona, with wood stove in adjoining room. They should thrive even more when I get the evaporative cooler going in the spring and fall. (AC for summer).

    My plants came carefully packaged, it was already in soil, there was no damage. This plant is beautiful with deep green leaves and iridescence . What a wonderful find.

    My little Pilea arrived to her new home cozy wrapped and safe. She now lives on a bookshelf by the window, in my living room, she arrived healthy and a week later is looking happy to be in her new home. Thank you Steve for nursing her for her new home. I will wait unti a new sister is ready to join her.
