Pilea is happy when growing in a well lit position. They have a tendency to grow towards the light and can grow very fast so rotate the plant every week to avoid a slanted stem.
Pilea grow best when the soil is kept slight damp, but they don't like wet feet so never leave them standing in water. When to water will depend on the amount of light your plant is receiving. Start by checking weekly, if the top of the soil is still damp then leave it be. If you stick your finger into the mix and it is completely dry then give it a good drink.
Pilea peppomioides are also pet friendly plants.
This plant stands about 10cm our of the pot.
