Indoor Plant Spotlight: Pilea

Right now, I’m a bit obsessed with the adorable, easy-to-care-for pilea. This pet-friendly plant has nearly circular foliage — which I find both charming and cool design-wise. Place one in your new “home office” (i.e., by your sofa) if it’s a well-lit space. Otherwise, keep this fast-grower close to a window or in a window sill. Water only once every two to three weeks.
