Pilea spruceana


Pilea spruceanum is a compact plant with chocolate colored leaves that have silvery bands and a hint of bronze in the new leaves. Its diminutive habit makes it a suitable terrarium plant. This plant is tolerant of shady conditions and makes a great indoor plant.

Pilea is the largest genus in the flowering family Urticaceae with over 600 species widely distributed throughout the tropics to warm temperate regions (with the exception of Australis and New Zealand). Most of the species grow along the forest floor as small shrubs and are therefore suitable for the shaded conditions of the home.
