Pilea Cadierei

Pilea cadierei makes a fantastic terrarium species thanks to its low growing habit, stunning foliage and easy care. Often called the Aluminum Plant for the beautiful silver variegation that’s splashed across the leaves, it’ll brighten up any terrarium project!

Native to China and Vietnam, this miniature Pilea is part actually part of the nettle family but grows more like a shrub. The characteristic silver splashes follow a regular raised pattern, with the longest streak radiating out from the base of the oval leaf, which then gives way to a series of smaller splashes. With its shimmery foliage and low growing habit, it makes an attractive terrarium foreground plant to catch the eye.

Lighting

Try to place Pilea cadierei in a bright spot with lots of indirect light for best growth.

Watering

This plant species has moderate water requirements and will fit well into most moist tropical terrarium conditions. As long as it has regular even moisture it’ll do just fine.

Temperature & Humidity

This tropical species is sensitive to the cold, and should be grown in a terrarium that’s consistently above 15°C (60°F) to keep it healthy.

Growth

The shrub-like growth of Pilea cadierei tends to form compact clusters of plants with overlapping leaves. You can pinch the stems to promote this growth pattern if you want to keep them as short and bushy as possible.

Propagation

Propagating the Aluminum Plant is pretty straightforward through stem cuttings. Simply take a cutting of a reasonable length just behind a node, remove the lower leaves if necessary to expose the stem, and then plant back into the substrate.
