Pilea mollis ‘Moon Valley’

(1 customer review)

$12.99

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

 

Family: Urticaceae

    This plant is stunning! It arrived happy and sprung into shape as soon as I took it out of the box. I’ve had it for a couple weeks and it’s growing quickly. The leaves are large, palm sized and have a beautiful texture. I’ve noticed they are sort of papery and are prone to dry spots, so I’m learning how to be gentle with it. I want to propagate it and pot it in a terrarium. Super pretty! would recommend for the foliage!
