Pilea peperomioides 
Chinese money plant

Gotta have this Pilea peperomioides!

This hip, Chinese money plant is a popular species that you often see in Scandinavian interior design. The bright-green, pancake-shaped leaves of the Pilea peperomioides, the plant’s official name, balance on the end of long, thin stems. It is not the most productive air-purifying plant, but cutting a Chinese money plant for shoots is incredibly easy. Want the air in your home to be a little fresher? Fill your room with Chinese money plant cuttings! Caring for this independent fellow is a piece of cake, too. Just water it once a week and you're set!

    The Pilea is provided in a nursery pot. Once it arrives, place the Pilea and its nursery pot into a flower pot. Give it water right away and set the plant in a warm, bright location (no full sun).

    How do I plant the Pilea in a pot without the nursery pot?

     If you would like the Pilea to grow even more, you can place it directly into a decorative pot.
    •    Choose a pot that is at least 20% larger than the nursery pot.
    •     Cover the bottom of the pot with a layer of hydrograins and fill it with potting soil.
    •     Carefully remove the plant from the nursery pot.
    •     Plant the Pilea in the centre of the decorative pot and make sure that the root ball of the plant is about 1 to 2 cm      below the edge.
    •     Fill the pot with fresh potting soil and press it lightly.
    •     Give it water right away and set the plant in a warm, bright location (no full sun).

    The Pilea is an incredibly low-maintenance, indoor plant. Water it once a week and give it plant food once every two weeks. The Pilea doesn’t like to be soaking wet, so it’s better to skip a round of watering than to water it again when the soil is still moist. It also thrives in high humidity.
