I was very excited to get a Pilea perperomioides plant this past summer. It has been growing very well. I wanted to give a cutting to Debbie and Mark when I visited them, so I divided the original plant a couple of times. There were lots of offshoots, so it was easy. I ended up giving them a tiny cutting, because it was easier to transport in my airplane carryon. I have the remaining divisions at school and in my kitchen.
One of the plants in my kitchen is blooming. I don’t know if it was triggered by the dividing, or the short daylight days of winter, or the cool windowsill of the kitchen, or some other thing.
The bloom spikes have been very slow-growing. I can’t tell if the flowers are open, or if they are still getting bigger. There are surprisingly few pictures of Pilea perperomioides flowers on the internet.
For the memory archive, and for the good of the internet, here are pictures of my Pilea perperomioides blooms:
