Missy sounds like a lovely addition to your plant family! Here are some care tips for your Pilea friendship plant:

🪴Light:Place Missy in bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch her leaves.

🪴Watering: Water your Pilea when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain away. Empty any excess water from the saucer to prevent root rot.

🪴Humidity: Pilea plants prefer moderate to high humidity. You can increase humidity by misting her leaves or placing a humidity tray nearby.

🪴Temperature:Keep Missy in a room with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid placing her near drafts or heaters.

🪴Fertilizing: Feed your Pilea with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

🪴Pruning: Trim off any yellow or damaged leaves to keep Missy looking her best and to encourage new growth.

🪴Propagation: Pilea plants are fun to propagate! You can propagate Missy by taking stem cuttings and rooting them in water or soil.

With these tips, Missy should thrive and bring you lots of joy!
