Ok so just picked up pilea glauca and wasn't sure or it was safe.
Safe plant list does say pilea is safe plant, any input?

Just a thought, but if you got the plant from Lowes, Home Depot, those
places, you may want to wash the leaves off as best you can with lots
of water and a sponge or something.
Large commercial nurseries use chemical pesticides on there plants to make
them look better, longer.
Some ppl even repot them with fresh soil (which veiled chams will eat if
given the chance!!)

I know of one cham retailer who flips their plants upside down and dips them into a bucket of Dawn and water. Then rinses them off with water.
