Description

Pilea spruceana 'Norfolk', also known as the silver net plant, is a charming houseplant that originates from the humid and shady underforests of tropical regions. As a member of the nettle family (Urticaceae), it is characterized by its adaptable and low-maintenance nature, making it an ideal choice for keeping in terrariums. This plant prefers an environment that is rich in humidity and where it can receive bright, indirect light, although it can also thrive in less illuminated areas. Pilea spruceana 'Norfolk' usually reaches a moderate height of 20 to 30 cm and fits seamlessly into a variety of terrarium sizes thanks to its compact growth and ability to spread horizontally. Its preference for high humidity and ability to thrive in a wide range of light conditions emphasize its versatility and suitability for life in a closed, microclimatic environment.

Within a terrarium, Pilea spruceana 'Norfolk' not only serves as a decorative element, but also adds a unique textural and visual dimension. Its oval to elliptical leaves are adorned with striking silver to metallic spots running along the mid-veins and sometimes along the edges, giving them a vibrant and attractive appearance. Although the flowers of Pilea spruceana 'Norfolk' are rather inconspicuous compared to its leaves, the occasional appearance of small, greenish or whitish flowers can add an extra, albeit subtle, interest. The combination of its adaptability to different light conditions, ability to thrive in high humidity and visually appealing appearance makes Pilea spruceana 'Norfolk' an excellent addition to any terrarium landscape, exuding a natural beauty and tranquillity.
