Pilea depressa ‘Baby Tears’ is an evergreen plant in the Urticaceae family. They are native to Brazil and Mexico. Pilea depressa is a vining plant that grows low to the ground and climbs or trails over the sides of hanging baskets. Perfect for fairy gardens and terrariums, their tiny ¼” scalloped leaves grow on vines that are green to light pink. Their foliage is thick for a vine and makes a lush carpet on the surface of the soil. Growing 3 to 6 inches tall without climbing and will grow several feet long without pruning. Flowers white, small and emerge in Spring from May to June.

Pilea depressa should be kept consistently moist but not muddy to prevent rot. Soil should be kept damp, like a wet sponge, and should not be allowed to dry out. Plants will arrive in a 2 inch pot, fully rooted in peat and perlite, and approximately 8 - 12 inches long. Plants can be cut and water propagated and planted back into the pot you are growing it in to make it fuller and more lush. Cold hardy year round in zones 10 to 12, they should be protected from frost in Spring but can live outside in temps ranging from 60 to 85, but prefer temps from 60 to 70.

Plants prefer bright, indirect light or partial sun so that they don’t burn up. Repot it moist, rich, well draining soil and fertilize with a balanced liquid fertilizer that has been diluted once per month. Be sure to read the care guide included with your plant to ensure proper watering and care. You can email us for details.


Winter Shipping

96 hour HEAT PACKS are available under the Accessories category. Due to the colder weather and the postal delays from Covid-19 and the increased number of packages during the holidays, we are only offering the larger, 96 hour heat pack and are upgrading all orders with a heat pack to Priority to hopefully ensure that the heat pack is still working upon arrival.

If the daytime temperature in your area or mine is below 45 degrees, we recommend a heat pack. If your area is going to be extremely cold, then you may need two heat packs. If you do not want to include heat packs during cold weather, then you take full responsibility if your plant freezes. We may check the weather between South Carolina and your location, and send a message to recommend adding a heat pack. We do not leave our plants outside for the post office to pick them up and instead take the plants to the post office before the postal truck comes at 4pm so that they are not sitting outside in the elements. We want to provide you with the highest quality plants possible and between our cost and the extra added cost of shipping, there is no mark up on heat packs and they are simply provided as a service to ensure your plants arrive safely.


They last at least 96 hours. Due to mail delays, we are only offering the 96 hour heat pack at this time. For an additional $7 charge, we are offering a shipping upgrade to priority shipping with an included heat pack. We cannot be responsible for plants that were damaged by extreme cold where a heat pack was not purchased, so please check your weather and take postal delays into consideration.
