Silver sparkle pilea name suggests they really do sparkle. They will “sparkle” when watered well. Watch the leaves closely and when it needs water that “sparkle” will fade a bit, but after it’s watered it will return.
Pilea is a genus consisting of about 600 species of frost tender, tropical foliage plants that include both upright bushy types and trailing varieties. Several smaller species are commonly cultivated as houseplants because they are so easy to grow and care for. These inexpensive little plants are excellent for growing indoors in dish gardens and are great starter plants for young or inexperienced growers. Their foliage varies considerably, ranging from 3" strongly textured, lance-shaped leaves to tiny heart-shaped, moss-like foliage. Pileas occasionally bloom, but their pink or cream-colored flowers are very tiny and often go unnoticed.
