HOW TO PROPAGATE YOUR PILEA PLANT
Dig with your fingers down in the soil as the baby Pilea guides you to her preferred place of cutting.
You’ll want to try to get as much of her root as you possibly can.
Next, simply cut the baby pup away from the mother Pilea.
From here you can decide for yourself if you’d like to water root the pup or soil pot the pup.
I chose to soil pot by simply planting the Pilea Pup Rooting in Moist Soil.
If you choose to water root, you simply place in a small rooting bottle of water.
Now it’s time to sit back and watch your baby or babies grow big and strong like their Momma!
Oh my heart, aren’t they the cutest lil’ Pileas you ever did see?!?
It’s been about 4 weeks since I propagated my baby Pilea Pups and they have already started producing new leaves!
It’s so much fun watching these little ones grow towards the Sun! I hope you enjoy your Pilea Peperomioides as much as I do!
