Recommended for use in paludariums and vivarium environments. Not suggested for aquariums.
Most varieties have striking variegated foliage of raised silver on deep green leaves. These plants are evergreens, which have plain, small blossoms. The plant can grow from 15 - 30cm (6 - 12 inches) in height. They have a spreading habitat, so encourage them depending on their supporting structure. Since you can't lather up plants with sunblock, this one needs partial shade outdoors. Propagate through trimmings
Another name for the Aluminium plants is Pilea cadierei. It's a member of the Urticaceae family (the nettle family, of flowering plants.) Found in tropical regions of the world, predominant in Southeast Asia. Growing aluminium plants thrive in a tropical climate. North America also cultivates them as houseplants. It's common to find them in hanging baskets. And, when grown outdoors, they look lovely cascading over a wall or as ground cover in suitable zones. Their speciality is lounging around, knowing they are beautiful to look at.
