What is the difference between small, medium or big thirst?

That's all well and good, but how do I know when my plant is thirsty? You know that by feeling! A plant that has little thirst may dry out almost completely. Does your pot weigh very light? Then it's probably time! Plants with average thirst may dehydrate up to 50%. Stick your finger in the soil (or use a water meter), do you feel wetness before you reach the center of the pot? Then it is best to wait a while before watering again. Plants that are very thirsty should only dry out by a few centimeters. Feel with your finger whether the soil on the surface is still wet, then it is best to wait a little longer before pouring. Once the first 10-20% of the top soil is dry, it's time for a sip!

What is the best way to water my Pilea ?

It is best to water (almost all plants) from above until the water runs out from the bottom through the holes in your pot.

Then you know he's had enough. Plants that you had forgotten for a moment (we don't judge) and that are very dry, may want to be left with their pot in the water for an hour afterwards. This way they have plenty of time to drink enough.
