Read It For Yourself With This Excerpt From The Book
“The One Thing That Will Kill a Pilea Peperomioides: Before I talk about the ins and outs of Pilea care, I want to give you a quick warning: Overwatering your plant will kill it faster than you can say “Pilea peperomioides.”
Plants need three things for their photosynthesis process: water, sunlight, and nutrients. However, too much of any of those components can harm your plant, with overwatering definitely being the most common cause of problems.
Overly wet roots cannot perform the necessary tasks to keep your Pilea thriving. Roots that are always sitting in water become so wet that they can no longer absorb oxygen, and they quite literally drown. Roots that have been damaged in this way can no longer absorb the water they need to supply the rest of the plant and fuel the photosynthesis process.
Though relatively easy to care for, Pilea peperomioides are extremely sensitive to overwatering. When they are overwatered, Pileas will droop, yellow, lose leaves, and eventually develop root rot and die. To keep your plant healthy, the number one, most important thing to remember is that too little water is much better than too much. Overwatering a Pilea is the quickest way to send it to an early grave.
If you remember anything from this care guide, let it be not to overwater your Pilea peperomioides. Heed this warning: Your plant doesn’t need as much water as you think it does.”
