Pilea Sugar, also known as Pilea Peperomioides 'Sugar', is a variegated version of the popular Chinese Money Plant. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Pilea Sugar prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch its leaves, so it's best to keep it in a location with filtered or indirect light.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, and allow any excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as this can cause root rot.

  3. Humidity: Pilea Sugar likes moderate to high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 65-75°F (18-24°C).

  5. Soil: Pilea Sugar prefers a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its shape and remove any yellowing or damaged leaves.

  8. Propagation: Pilea Sugar can be propagated by removing offsets or "pups" that grow from the base of the plant. Gently separate the pup from the main plant and plant it in a separate pot with fresh potting soil.

  9. Pests and Diseases: Pilea Sugar is relatively pest-free, but watch out for spider mites and mealybugs. Overwatering can cause root rot.

Pilea Sugar is a low-maintenance plant that can add a touch of unique, modern style to any room with its distinctive variegated leaves on long stems. Like its non-variegated counterpart, it is also known for being a symbol of good fortune and prosperity.
