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!

Excited to watch this plant grow! It arrived full of leaves and in such good shape, thank you!
After much anticipation my plant arrived. It was well packaged and pretty magnificent. I expected a small little plant and as a novice I hoped I could keep alive. To my delight I received a large beautiful plant with lots of new growth. My easy to follow directions on how to care for my new plant advised me not to replant for 2 weeks! It’s taken great restraint on my part to wait since I purchased a lovely pot for it. I went right back to Pistils website and ordered another plant! I have a feeling I’ll be ordering on an ongoing basis.
