Pilea peperomioides, also known as the Chinese Money Plant, is a small, herbaceous, flowering plant native to southern China. It is a member of the nettle family and is widely cultivated as a houseplant for its attractive appearance and ease of care.
The plant has distinctive circular leaves, which are bright green and smooth with a slightly wavy margin. The leaves are attached to long, thin, green stems that originate from a central crown. The crown is a cluster of stems that grow from a bulb-like structure known as a rhizome, which is located just below the soil surface,
Pilea peperomioides is a low-maintenance plant that can thrive in various light conditions. It prefers bright, indirect light and should be watered when the soil is dry. The plant is relatively small, reaching a maximum height of around 30 cm (12 inches) and a spread of around 20 cm (8 inches).
In addition to its attractive appearance, Pilea peperomioides is also known for its air-purifying properties, making it a popular choice for improving indoor air quality. The plant is non-toxic to humans and pets, making it a safe and healthy addition to any home or office.
Overall, Pilea peperomioides is a charming and easy-to-care-for plant that can add a touch of greenery to any indoor space.
We recommend using a terracotta pot for this wonderful houseplant as it lets the soil breathe - you can also use one of our seagrass planters over this if you prefer the look. This extra-large Pilea is really great if you want instant impact and don’t want to wait for your plant to grow bigger!
