Pilea depressa Tiny Tears

 Low growing, spreading plant with thick green leaves and pinkish stems.  Pretty bright green foliage is round with an attractive scalloped edge.  Tiny leaves reach about 1/4" wide and grow tight to the stem.  With bright indirect light, plants grow close to the ground like a carpet and will cascade over the side of a pot.  In darker shade, stems grow longer between the leaves and plants will be taller as they reach for the light.  Does not like to sit in wet soil; allow the top of the soil to dry slightly between waterings. A good little plant to create a sea of green in the fairy garden, leprechaun garden, or miniature garden.   Sometimes called "Tiny Toes" or "Leprechaun Toes."  (Do not confuse with Baby Tears, Soleirolia soleirolii. Tiny Tears has thicker stems and foliage, a more substantial texture overall than Baby Tears.  Tiny Tears also has scalloped edges on the leaves, while Baby Tears has smooth round leaf margins.)
