Pilea glauca ‘Aquamarine’ is a low-growing tropical perennial that is native to the rainforests of central and South America. Where it is endemic it grows as creeping a groundcover. At home, it is ideal for terrariums and hanging baskets. It grows well both indoors and outdoors but should be kept inside once temperatures drop below 40 ºF. It is a member of the nettle family, a plant family that contains many plants known for their medicinal value, though this plant is not known for any such benefits.
