Q.Black spots on pilea peperomia

Zone 00184 | Ayesha Zafar Sabri added on August 2, 2018 | Answered

I got my pilea about a month ago, I started seeing these tiny black spots. The plant sits on the east facing window and I water it about twice a week because it’s quite hot.
Please tell me what i can do?

Is this planted, only, in peat moss? Or is there soil under that? They do best in a well draining organic potting mix. Make sure the container has plenty of drainage holes. They will not tolerate over watering at all.

They will not tolerate overfeeding, but peat will not have enough nutrients to sustain the plant. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/pilea-plants/pilea-chinese-money-plant-info.htm
