Propagating Pilea depressa

The delicate stems of this plant grow prolific runners – all they need is potting medium and abundant moisture. I clipped some stems and pressed them into a shallow container, generously misting every couple of days.

Hoping for multiple dishes of this beautiful plant in a few weeks, if this first experiment is successful. Fingers crossed.
