Creeping Pilea or Creeping Charlie is considered to be invasive in climates where it can grow outdoors, so it's fortunate that we can grow them indoors as a fresh, bright green house plant. This pilea trails beautifully, so pair it in a planter with peperomias, calatheas, or even upright philodendrons. Pinch the stems back if it gets too long - it will put out more growth on top. If this creeper gets within reach of a curious pet or little human, not to worry - Creeping Charlie is pet-friendly, and some sources say the plant is edible - no idea how it tastes!
