1. **Light**: They prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

2. **Watering**: Water when the top inch of soil is dry. They prefer slightly moist but well-draining soil. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure the pot has drainage holes.

3. **Temperature**: They thrive in average to warm room temperatures (18-24°C or 65-75°F). Avoid drafts and sudden temperature changes.

4. **Humidity**: Average room humidity is usually sufficient. They can tolerate normal household humidity levels.

5. **Fertilizing**: Feed once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength.

6. **Pruning**: Trim back any leggy growth to encourage bushiness. Pinch off growing tips to promote a fuller plant.

7. **Repotting**: Repot every 1-2 years in spring if the plant has outgrown its pot. Use a well-draining potting mix.

8. **Pests**: Watch for common houseplant pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

9. **Propagation**: Pilea peperomioides are easy to propagate from stem or leaf cuttings. Place cuttings in water or directly into soil to root.

10. **Special Care**: Rotate the plant occasionally to ensure even growth, as they tend to lean towards the light source.

By following these care tips, you can help your Pilea peperomioides thrive and grow healthily!
