Pilea or Pilea depressa is a native of Mexico and Brazil. It belongs to the Urticaceae family and looks largely similar to the original baby’s tears. Though both types are not closely related, they can be confused with each other. Pilea has leaves smaller than a fingernail and are round in shape.


They like partial sun or bright filtered light. Water every 5 to 7 days depending on light and temperature. Keep soil evenly moist, but not soggy wet.
