Pilea depressa, also known as baby tears, is a gorgeous trailing plant, perfect for any spot in the home. The compact vine has a dense foliage of bright green leaves with delicate, often ruffled edges.
This plant is a great addition to hanging baskets.
Pilea depressa thrives in medium to bright indirect light. Avoid locations that receive harsh, direct light as it will burn the delicate leaves. While this plant can adapt to lower light conditions; it will become leggy, grow fewer offshoots, and the coin-shaped leaves may become smaller.
Plant in rich, well-draining soil. A high-quality organic potting mix that is peat-based or coir-based is best. Amend the soil with perlite to increase drainage and ensure the soil does not become waterlogged. A soil pH between 6.0-7.0 is best for this plant.
This evergreen perennial is considered to have medium water needs. Allow the plant to nearly dry out between waterings and then water well. The leaves will begin to droop when it dries out, which is a good indication that it’s time for watering.
The average household temperature and humidity are fine for this plant. Where possible, avoid overly dry conditions, which usually means keeping the plant away from heating vents or baseboards.
