Pilea Moon Valley, also known as Pilea mollis or the Moon Valley Pilea, is an attractive houseplant known for its deeply textured, bright green leaves with contrasting dark veins. The leaves have a crinkled appearance, giving them a unique and eye-catching look. This compact plant is perfect for tabletops, terrariums, or as part of a mixed plant display.

Light

Prefers bright, indirect light. 

Can tolerate lower light levels but will grow more slowly.

Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Water

Water when the top inch of soil feels dry.

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

Reduce watering in the winter when the plant's growth slows down.

Humidity

Thrives in moderate to high humidity levels (50-70%).

Can adapt to average indoor humidity but benefits from occasional misting or a humidifier.

Temperature

Ideal temperature range: 18-24°C.

Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 15°C.

Fertilisation

Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

Reduce feeding in fall and winter.

Repotting

Repot every 1-2 years or when the plant becomes root-bound.

Choose a pot that is one size larger and has drainage holes.

Pruning

Prune to maintain the desired shape and to encourage bushier growth.

Remove any yellow or dead leaves to maintain plant health.

Pests

Watch for common pests like spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs.

Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if needed.

Propagation

Easily propagated through stem cuttings.

Take a cutting with a few leaves and nodes, then root it in water or moist soil.

Ensure good humidity and light conditions for successful propagation.
