Pilea has white spots – House Plant Journal

Pilea has white spots

Plant: Pilea peperomioides

How long have you had the plant? 1 to 6 months

Plant Parent:

Our Pilea has developed these small white bumps that easily shake off. Any idea what these could be? Spider mites maybe?



These white solids accumulate on the pores of Pilea very commonly when there are minerals in the water and/or in the soil (and there always will be).

Nothing to worry about – it’s completely harmless and does not require any action on your part. Hope this helps!
