Clouds of smoke
An special hanging plant with a special name. Touch the plant when mature and it gives off pollen. A little cloud of smoke appears, just like a cannon shot. The artillery plant (Pilea glaucophylla) is a must-have for your home.
The Pilea is easy to care for. The houseplant loves being in a bright spot. But it can also tolerate (partial) shade. The potting soil should always be kept damp.

What do I need?


The Pilea is provided in a nursery pot. Once it arrives, place the Pilea and its nursery pot into a flower pot. Give it water right away and set the plant in a warm, bright location (no full sun).

How do I plant the Pilea in a pot without the nursery pot?

 If you would like the Pilea to grow even more, you can place it directly into a decorative pot.
  •    Choose a pot that is at least 20% larger than the nursery pot.
  •     Cover the bottom of the pot with a layer of hydrograins and fill it with potting soil.
  •     Carefully remove the plant from the nursery pot.
  •     Plant the Pilea in the centre of the decorative pot and make sure that the root ball of the plant is about 1 to 2 cm      below the edge.
  •     Fill the pot with fresh potting soil and press it lightly.
  •     Give it water right away and set the plant in a warm, bright location (no full sun).

What do I need?

  • Watering can
  • Plant sprayer
 
The Pilea is an incredibly low-maintenance, indoor plant. Water it once a week and give it plant food once every two weeks. The Pilea doesn’t like to be soaking wet, so it’s better to skip a round of watering than to water it again when the soil is still moist. It also thrives in high humidity.

Extra+

This plant is sure to be noticed when you have one in your home. It originated in (sub-)tropical regions of America, Africa and Asia.
Pilea is actually a member of the stinging nettle (Urticaceae) family and is a well-known plant for its unusually decorative foliage.
The small leaved varieties will also thrive in a terrarium and look very beautiful.
