Meet Pip. She’s a fan of mod fashion with bold geometric patterns on brightly colored stems. Hobbies are listening to records, enjoying the nightlife, and scanning Italian magazines for the latest fashions. Easy to grow and propagate, soon you and all your friends can be as cool, neat, sharp, hip, and smart as Pip!

We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.

**IMPORTANT NOTE:
This plant ships as a 1″ fully rooted starter plant, as shown in the second photo. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
If you order multiple plants, we put them together in one pot so they stay moist and insulated. If you think we haven’t sent the full order, please take out the plants from the pot first to count them.

Notes:

  • Botanical name: Pilea peperomioides
  • Native to southern China.
  • Quite responsive to the sun and a fast grower, so it has a tendency to send all its leaves in one direction. Rotate the plant 2-3 times a week to avoid a slanted stem.
  • Does not like drafts and may drop leaves if placed near a heating vent.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
