Pilea Peperomioides - Chinese Money Plant
Pilea peperomioides is a rare and hard-to-find indoor plant native to southern China. The plant's bright green color contrasts wonderfully against white walls, which is perhaps why it's so highly sought after in the minimalist interior design world. Also called Chinese Money Plant or Pancake Plant due to its flat, coin-shaped foliage, Pilea peperomioides has a central upright stem, surrounded on all sides by its characteristic perky peltate leaves.
Pilea peperomioides is spectacularly easy to grow and propagate indoors. Simply place the plant where it will receive bright but indirect light, watering regularly and shielding from the direct sun. The plant will reward you with seemingly constant growth, and may even produce "pups" - offshoots that can be cut away and propagated as separate plants.
Although uncommon in the US, we have a limited quantity of Pilea peperomioides available. Overall height and width of plants is 5-7"+. Each plant has 10+ leaves - leaves measure 1-3". Ships in a 4" plastic nursery pot.
*Includes detailed care instructions. Assorted pottery sold separately.
