Pilea microphylla ‘Variegata’ is a tricolor version of the Artillery Plant featuring tiny leaves variegated in light-green and white and tinged in a lovely pink. Mounding foliage grows on upright, sturdy stems. The small flowers explosively send pollen into the air, hence the common name of Artillery Plant.
It is a great choice in a terrarium, or as a houseplant. This plant prefers moderate light and moist soil. Don’t be afraid to prune this bad boy if it outgrows its space. It doesn’t mind at all.
