You may also be wondering the best way to care for your Pilea when it arrives. I know I wondered all of the above when I purchased my first Pilea a while back. No worries, I’m here to share it all with you!
I’m SUPER EXCITED TO SHARE MY PILEA PEPEROMIOIDES ONLINE ORDERING UNBOXING AND REPOTTING & PROPAGATION BLOG VIDEO TIPS WITH YOU!
Where to Purchase Your Pile Peperomioides via Online Ordering? I purchased mine through a company on Etsy called Garden Goods Direct Anytime one orders a product online it’s always the “unknown” feeling of how will this item or product arrive, of course this feeling of purchasing a live plant triples! After reading many reviews of customers pleased with their Pilea Plants and communicating with the company, I decided to take the plunge and my oh my I’m so glad I did!
Placed my Order
Was Notified of Shipping
Received 2 Days Later Arrived at My Front Door
The Box was clearly marked and sitting pretty when I opened my front door
After carefully cutting open the box, I found the prettiest Pilea Peperomioides
Pilea was wrapped in brown paper, had a warming pad, and was stapled to prevent spillage
After I carefully removed her from the packaging, I inspected her for bugs with no signs
Upon inspection I was happily surprised with a baby Pilea Pup sitting proudly beside her Momma! She was indeed old enough to separate!
With any Pilea Purchase, I always immediately change out my soil. Please understand I am by no means saying my online order was tainted soil…it was perfectly clean with no signs of bugs, pests, or fungus. I just personally feel better replacing all soil with my FAVORITE SOIL MIX to prevent any chances of the dreaded fungus gnats. I seriously swear by this soil! I’ve had so much luck with this soil, that all of my Pileas are happily growing within this soil, producing pups, and have no signs of fungus gnats. As a precaution I always have my Favorite Sticky Gnat Traps on Hand and the first sign I see they are caught instantly, the soil I use stays so dry there is hardly any chance of egg laying. Now onto my typical repotting and propagation process of all of my Pileas….
