The Pilea Glaucophylla, commonly referred to as the "Grey Baby Tears," is a delightful small perennial with cascading stems densely covered by tiny, round, silver-grey leaves. The plant's compact, trailing growth habit makes it an ideal choice for hanging baskets or as a foreground plant in terrariums.
Where do I come from?
Native to Central and South America
Prefers bright, indirect light. While it can handle some direct sunlight, too much can cause leaf burn.
Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure the pot has proper drainage.
Thrives in higher humidity. Bathrooms or kitchens would be the best rooms. If the air is too dry, consider using a humidity tray, grouping with other plants, or misting the plant occasionally.
