Beginner plants are exceptionally forgiving and hardy. They are easy to keep alive and mostly low maintenance. These are perfect if you have a less-than-green thumb, or just starting to hone your gardening skills.

Light Care

Medium Light
These plants need filtered or dappled sunlight. You would want to place them in a well-lit room with windows, but away from direct light. A sunny window with sheer curtains is also a good idea.

Water Care

Medium Water
Plants with medium or moderate water needs should be watered once or twice a week. They need moist soil throughout the growing season for optimum growth and flowering. Water these plants when the soil is dry to touch.

Fertilizer Care

Low Fertilizer
These plants would appreciate a regular application of fertilizers during the growing season. They aren’t heavy feeders, and feeding at low rates is enough for these low-fertilizer plants to grow well.



Plant Care

This popular plant is known as the friendship plant beacuse of its ability to grow lots of pups that can be shared amoung others. To keep your plant thriving, place it in filtered or dappled light to ensure it leaves don't burn. Allow the top 2-3 inches of soil to dry out between waterings and be careful not to overwater. When repotting we recommend using our All Purpose soil.


The Pilea originates from china and was brought to Norway by a norwegian missionary.
