Light: Thrives in bright, indirect light. It prefers several hours of bright, filtered sunlight each day. However, it can tolerate lower light conditions, although the leaves may not grow as large or vibrant. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Prefers slightly moist soil. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. It's important not to overwater, as the plant is susceptible to root rot. Allow the excess water to drain away, and ensure that the pot has drainage holes.

Soil: Pilea peperomioides prefers well-draining soil. A mix of regular potting soil and perlite or peat moss is suitable. Ensure that the soil is loose and well-aerated to prevent waterlogged conditions.

Fertilization: Benefits from regular fertilization during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength every 4-6 weeks. Avoid fertilizing during the dormant period (fall and winter).

Humidity: Can tolerate average indoor humidity levels. However, it appreciates slightly higher humidity. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves or placing a tray of water near the plant.

Temperature: Prefers average to warm temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, but not below 50°F (10°C). Protect it from cold drafts and temperature fluctuations.

Propagation: Pilea peperomioides can be propagated through stem cuttings or by separating the baby plants, also known as "pups," that grow from the base of the plant. For stem cuttings, take a healthy stem with a few leaves and place it in water or directly in well-draining soil. Roots will develop in a few weeks. For separating pups, gently remove them from the parent plant and plant them in their own pots with well-draining soil.
