An adorably quirky plant that only recently started appearing on the shelves of retail shops, the Pilea Peperomiodes or Chinese Money Plant is known for its unique, coin-like foliage and ease of propagation, thus earning itself the nickname of “the friendship plant.”
Prefers bright indirect light
Water once a week or when the soil has completely dried out
30 days + lifetime expert plant care support
The Pilea plant is not only unique in its appearance. Hailing from Himalyan China, this plant is said to have originally been brought to Europe by a Norweigan missionary. Constantly sprouting “pups” (baby plants) from the soil surrounding its main stalk, the Pilea was propagated and passed along from friend to friend. As such, the plant was rarely sold commercially and, for many years, considered a rarity in many places of the Western world.
