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!

I’ve used several different online plant stores, and been disappointed in the cost, the longevity of the plant after receiving, etc, BUT, I had a terrific experience with Pistils Nursery! I was a little worried after I realized they’re in Portland, Oregon, and I’m in northeast Ohio, but the plants arrived quickly and in great shape. I ordered four plants, and all were so meticulously packaged. I was very impressed, considering the price point- it was incredibly reasonable, and I can say with 100% confidence, I will not be ordering from the high priced online stores ever again. I’ll definitely be a return customer to Pistils for as long as they keep shipping all the way to me in Ohio!
Love my newest addition!
Very healthy and wrapped well. I love the plants I get from here.
