The Artillery Plant grows good on part shaded to part sunny spots with morning, evening and winter sun. If the pot is placed at least 30 centimetres behind the window, it can tolerate hot summer sun.
Regular mixes for container plants, vegetables or herbs can be used.
Allow the soil to dry to about 75 % of the pots height before adding water.
From spring to fall when Pilea depressa is in active growth a standard liquid fertilizer can be given monthly. Spikes or granules can be given every 3th to 6th month. New bought or recently repotted plants don’t need to be fed for the first year.
A warm location throughout the year is welcome. But a winter rest period at about 15 °C (59 °F) is also fine. Minimum temperature for Pilea depressa is 10 °C (50 °F).
Stem cuttings with at least 2 leaves will root in about a week at 20 °C (68 °F).
