My love for crochet plants h increased greatly over the p couple of years. Since I started designing crochet plants, I build a large list of to-do's, and this Baby Tears Pilea Depress was one on the list.

It is so much fun to make and the outcome is beautifully pleasing to the eyes. After studying the plant, I fell in love with it even more! Here are a few facts about this beauty.

  • Pilea depressa is practically indestructible and requires very little maintenance to survive in an enclosure.
  • Pilea depressa also known as the Baby Tears Plant, is a trailing plant with petite leaves growing no taller than 3 inches.
  • Tropical ground cover plant with an abundance of miniature leaves

  • Interestingly, Both male flowers and female flowers may be borne on the same plant.
