Plant Features

The Norfolk Pilea, commonly known as the Friendship Plant, is a delightful and easy-to-care-for houseplant, belonging to the Pilea genus. It's named the "Friendship Plant" due to its ease of propagation, making it simple to share cuttings with friends. This plant is characterized by its small, round leaves that are often deep green with a hint of bronze and a textured, almost quilted appearance. It's a relatively compact plant, making it perfect for small spaces like office desks, shelves, or as part of a terrarium.

When it comes to caring for the Norfolk Pilea, there are a few common issues to watch out for. Browning leaf edges can indicate low humidity or underwatering. Overwatering can lead to yellowing leaves and root rot, so it's important to ensure the plant has well-draining soil and isn't left in standing water. If the plant is stretching towards the light or the foliage color fades, it might need more light. However, too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves. Regularly check for pests such as spider mites or aphids.
