It is also called a coin plant . It would actually be enough to bury a coin at its foot to ensure prosperity!
When I tell you that this plant has everything good!
C ow bouturer the pilea peperomioides
Before you run into a garden center, I must tell you that I read that it was a plant that is transmitted . It is not necessary to buy it (and it is often sold too expensive) because it is enough to simply find around you someone who has one and to make cuttings a small sprout (preferably in spring).
I love this principle of collaborating and passing on plants rather than buying them, so it’s really the plant that corresponds to the values I want to defend .
So it was my cousin who devoted herself and gave me a little push the last time I went to her place. Between our various discussions on books, photo, social networks, a coffee and a piece of cake, we placed a small cuttings session of Pilea and it was quite nice!
Which allows me to introduce baby Aglaé ( yes I like to give names to my plants!) Which I will incubate for about 4 weeks. By the time it makes a sufficiently strong and long root (3 cm) so that I can put it in the ground.
In the meantime, you will also have to change the water every 15 days and, as in the photo, select shoots with several stems so that they are stronger. Of course, only the root soaks in the water, it’s not about drowning it either!
We just have to wait !
We plant the Pilea in the ground in 4 weeks if all goes well
Finally time flies so quickly that I did not even have time to publish this article and the 4 weeks are already there.
Baby Aglaé is in great shape and growing! Look at the wonderful roots she made for me and how she became vigorous.
I find it just magical to have this “power” to help nature grow, even if it’s just in the context of its small interior. And then, it seems to me that it makes us more attentive to the precious little things in life… ♥
It only remains for me to put this valiant little cutting of Piléa in the ground so that it continues its life
I can’t wait for her to grow to be able to create other cuttings and enlarge the family!
Vegetalize your interior more to clean up but also feel better, it’s a pretty cool solution isn’t it?
