Pilea Peperomioides | 8cm | Houseplant

Pilea peperomioides

Pilea peperomoides, also known as the Chinese Money plant and the Pancake plant, is said to bring good fortune to all who possess one. However, it is also known as the Friendship Plant because it's one of the easiest and quickest plants to propagate, and these baby plants can be abundantly shared with friends and family.

Friendship really is such a beautiful thing, because your friends are the people you’ve chosen to spend your time with. The ones who pick you up when you’re down, make you laugh, are there to share drinks with or just hang out, and now you can help and guide each other as your take on plant ownership together too.

All you need to decide now is who you’re sending a new plant baby to…

How to care for your Pilea Peperomioides | 8cm | Houseplant

Native habitat

Pilea peperomioides is native to South West China and the West Indies.

Light and Position in Home

The Chinese money plant enjoys a bright spot but it must be sheltered from direct sunlight.

Watering and humidity

Allow the surface of the compost to dry out in between waterings from spring through to early autumn. In winter, however, water more sparingly, and make sure you always use tepid tap water. Plants enjoy raised levels of humidity, so mist the leaves regularly.
