Red Stem Baby Tears


This Pilea glaucophylla - Red Steam Tears is an easy-to-grow house plant with colorful foliage. It has leaves that are dark green with a brownish tinge and a pair of silvery streaks run down either side of the center vein. Clusters of small, pink flowers bloom just above the foliage. Best in an east facing window for medium light intensity. For best results, keep humidity constantly high and temperatures in the range of 62 to 65 F at night and up to 85 F during the day. Pilea Glauca leaves are very small but great in numbers. They grow as a sphere from the pot and the plant can have hanging offshoots. Pilea glauca plants can be easily kept in a windowsill or lit terrarium.

If grown as houseplants, Pilea plants grow best in warm daytime temperatures of 75°-80° with 10 degrees cooler at night. Pileas need about 50% humidity in order to thrive, so they should be kept on a tray filled with moistened pebbles or misted regularly, or they can be grown in a terrarium. Pileas grow best in smaller, 4" pots or planters where their roots will be somewhat restricted.
