Product Information

Also known as the Chinese money plant or missionary plant, Pilea peperomioides is a compact, upright houseplant with unusual, rounded mid-green leaves carried on long, arching stalks.

Originating from southwestern China, this is still quite a rare plant and its unlikely that youll see it for sale in your local garden centre. A beautiful plant, its lily pad style leaves look lovely as they move in the breeze. Pilea loves lots of bright, indirect sunlight and reacts amazingly quickly to it, having a tendency to grow all of its leaves in the direction of the light. As it grows quickly, its a good idea to rotate the plant a couple of times each week so that you get a straight central stem with leaves in all directions.

Very easy to grow and care for, Pilea enjoys good light and high humidity and will appreciated regular misting, and if you notice the leaves starting to curl, this means the plant isnt getting enough light.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK plant lovers at every level of experience. You can therefore grow this houseplant with confidence.

Supplied as a potted plant in a 13cm nursery pot, growing to a height and spread of 50cm (20in).
