Baby Tears Pilea 4"


Baby’s tears have a beautifully earthy, moss-like appearance, embellished with tiny, round and green leaves on fleshy stems. Mostly sought out for its low growing habit (6 inches (15 cm.) tall by 6 inches (15 cm.) wide) and strikingly green foliage, this plant lacks a truly vibrant bloom. The flowers of the baby’s tear tend to be rather inconspicuous.

This member of the Urticaceae group loves an elevated humidity level with moderately moist soil, perfect for terrariums and the like. It's spreading, creeping form also works well draped decoratively over the edge of a pot or can be pinched off to create a small dramatic mound of tight apple green leaves. 

This plant is NON-TOXIC to dogs, cats and horses and is considered to be pet safe.

Botanical Name:  Pilea Depresa


Bright, indirect light.


Only when soil is dry.

Pot & Soil: 

 Well draining soil, well draining pot. Do not repot within 30 days of receiving your plant from Get Rootsy in order to ensure the plant's transit and adjustment to its new home.
