Botanical name: Pilea involucrata 'Moon Valley'
Pilea is a genus of 100s of species, and this is one of the few grown as an indoor plant. One of the most popular cultivars is 'Moon Valley', shown here. It's sometimes sold as Pilea mollis.
Moderate to bright light. Place your plant near a window, but away from direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves. Give Pilea involucrata a quarter turn every few days to expose all sides to sunlight.
Use a pot with drainage holes and water thoroughly. Allow water to drain, then empty drainage tray. Allow the potting medium to dry out a bit between waterings; Friendship Plant won't tolerate soggy soil and may get root rot. Keep it slightly drier in winter, when growth is slower.
These plants need some care. High humidity is a must. If relative humidity drops below 50%, place pot on a tray of wet pebbles or use a cool-mist room humidifier. It makes an excellent terrarium plant.
Safe for cats and dogs.
