There is some confusion as to which species this Pilea belongs. Sometimes it is listed as mollis and sometimes involucrata. But, there should be no confusion as to the identity of this distinct plant. “Moon Valley” has large deeply textured leaves. The leaves are chocolate brown in the center with a wide margin of lime green. In more shade the leaves have more lime green in them. The growth habit is bushy. The tiny pink flowers form round clusters in the leaf axials. This pilea has a really dramatic appearance. It is perfect for the window sill, mixed container or large terrarium.
Shade to partial shade, temp. 45 to 95 degrees, 8 to 12in. tall, allow getting slightly dry between watering
