ALUMINUM - Pilea

  alt   alt

A member of the nettle family, the Aluminum plant is grown for the beauty of its leaves, which have silvery splotches on a green background.

LIGHT: Aluminum plants like bright filtered light to semi-shade. Be careful to keep away from direct sunlight as this will burn the leaves.

WATER: Water when soil is slightly dry using tepid water. Do not allow plant to stand in water. Misting is beneficial providing you have good air circulation.

Propagation is from stem cuttings.

This plant is readily available in 3" pot size and occasionally in 4" pots.
