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.

Love my Pilea
I'm very pleased with my plant and the shipping process. I live in North Carolina so I was a little worried about the condition the plant would be in when it arrived but it was package really well and only one of the leaves fell off during travel. But that's expected considering the long travel. I will definitely order from them again. Thank you!
Pilea peperomioides-Chinese coin plant
I needed to add a couple more of these Pilea peperomioides to my collection of houseplants & succulents because my propagation is going kind of slow. I have gotten them from other nurseries but these 2 I just got from Pistils nursery were the nicest that I’ve every received. They weren’t perfect but that will come in time.
