Pilea peperomioides - Chinese Money Plant
Pilea peperomioides is a highly sought after indoor plant native to southern China. The plant's bright green color contrasts wonderfully against white walls, which is perhaps why it's so prized 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.
• Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feel dry
• Considerations: Pilea peperomioides doesn't mind drying out moderately between waterings, but hates "wet feet" – select a pot with drainage. "Pups" can be separated and easily propagated. Pet friendly!

This was my first time buying plants online but Pistil's prices were reasonable so I took the plunge. They kept continual contact with me to let me know where they were with the shipping process and when to expect delivery. The plants I ordered (3) arrived in perfect condition and perked up by the next day. I have recommended them to several friends and family members-- I could not have had a better experience!
She came in with a couple of broken leaves. But I love her and she'll be replanted this week.
Received my plant in perfect condition, it was dry and I watered it right away and it is so pretty, I love it!!!
