Pilea peperomioides - Chinese Money Plant
Pilea peperomioides is a 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.
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.
*Limited quantity available. Includes detailed care instructions. Hand Thrown Ceramic Planter sold separately.

This is truly one of my favorite plants.
My money plant arrived slightly wilted and a few leaves now have a yellowish tint. Any suggestions about watering and light would be most appreciated.l
I've been wanting a Chinese Money Plant for a while now, particularly after gifting my mom one for Mother's Day. It's a little fussier than I'm used to (as someone who's stuck to semi-succulents for fear of killing everything else) but after the first few days of recovering from travel it seems to be thriving. I plan to start propagating it soon so I can have a little one to live on my desk at work. Super healthy, attractive and a great plant. Thank you Pistils for the amazing shipping and quality!!! /Users/malloryguinee/Desktop/IMG_5811.HEIC
