Pilea involucrata is native to Central and South America. It is a bushy trailing plant that features clusters of ovate, toothed, textured, dark green leaves (to 3” long) with dark bronze undertones and often light green edges. Leaf undersides are typically dark red. Tiny pink-green flowers in branched cymes in summer are not particularly showy. Indoor plants rarely flower and fruit. Genus name comes from the Latin word pileus meaning a cap from the shape of the female flowers. Specific epithet means with an involcure, a ring of bracts surrounding several flowers.
