  18. Jill (verified owner)

    I ordered three plants and they all arrived in good shape. My issue with the process was the shipping. After waiting the allotted time, I had no news of my order. There are several poor reviews on shipping time and customer service. The email customer service was nice, but not helpful. When I called, I was able to more detail on my delayed order. My order was then shipped out and arrived 7 days later. I was thankful when they finally arrived, all 3 were beautiful. Hopefully the shipping gets worked out.

    Nice full plant but it was delivered upside down which broke most of the stems; hoping it will recover; the weight of soil in pot was also a factor in plants poor condition.

  23. Nadiya (verified owner)

    Very healthy and happy plant.the shipment and packaging was great

  24. VERONIQUE P. (verified owner)

    My initial plant was a lot smaller than what I thought I was paying for… so that was disappointing. Reached out to PlantVine, showing them the plant received. They said the wrong size was sent, and corrected the mistake, by sending me another plant. This replacement met my expectations, and I appreciate them for wanting to make my experience with PlantVine a pleasant one.

Is this an indoor plant?

2 years 2 months ago

Hi Patricia, Yes! Pileas have become a favorite houseplant!They do best in a bright, indirect sunny spot in your home. Be sure to allow the soil to dry between waterings, as Pilea do not like soggy soil.

Any idea why my pilea leaves are curling under? I thought it was from too much light/heat because I accidentally left a bunch of my plants in direct sunlight outside one very hot day but I’ve since remedied the situation. Inside with indirect light/ grow lights and a decent amount of humidity but the new growth continues to curl and It’s never popped up any babies. Help!

Hi Rin, One of the most common causes of Pilea leaves curling is over watering. Pilea prefer for their soil to dry out between watering. Watering too frequently can lead to curling, droopy leaves and eventually root rot. If your Pilea leaves are curling, turning yellow, and falling off, over watering is the likely cause.
