Pilea cadierei (Aluminium plant)

The Pilea cadierei is native to China and Vietnam and commonly called Aluminium plant. Featuring wide, bushy leaves that are marked with silver patterns, it is an easy going house plant that is generally simple to look after. As long as the Pilea cadierei plant gets the water and sunlight it wants, it will continue to be a stunning addition to your indoor garden for years to come. Position your Aluminium Plant in a bright sunny position allowing good indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight may cause the leaves to burn. Adjust watering dependent on the seasons. During the hotter months keep the soil moist and during the cooler months allow the top layer of soil to dry between watering. The root system is extensive and will break containers if it needs more room. This root system must be observed on an annual basis in order to re-pot before pot breakage occurs.
