Pilea

Once a rare sight­ing, the round, glossy leaves of pilea are now seen in­creas­ingly in our homes. This is largely be­cause they are so easy to prop­a­gate. Plantlets that spring up around their base can be snipped off and pot­ted on in a twin­kling, with the re­sult­ing plants dis­persed among friends. “They’ll lean to­wards the light,” says Alice Howard of Botanique Work­shop, ar­ti­san store and flower shop, “so keep them out of di­rect sun­light. Oth­er­wise, they are as easy to care for as they are to prop­a­gate.”
