Aluminum Plant

 (Pilea Cadierei)

 

Size – 12 inches tall, 8 inches wide.

Exposure – At least four hours of bright, indirect sunlight every day. 

Soil – Well-draining.

Water – During Spring and Summer, the top quarter inch of the soil should be kept moist. During Fall and Winter, allow the top quarter inch of soil to dry out before watering again.

Fertilize – Dilute food to ½ strength and feed during growing months of Spring and Summer.

Prune – Trim stems each Spring to encourage healthy, continual growth. If they don’t get a haircut, they will likely become leggy.

Re-Pot – In opposition to many houseplants, avoid this plant getting root bound by checking every Spring and re-potting when necessary.
