Pilea Peperomioides 'Chinese money plant' 4"
Pilea peperomioides, often referred to as the pancake plant, Chinese money plant, coin plant, or UFO plant, is a popular houseplant thanks to its attractive coin-shaped foliage and ease of care.
Provide your Pilea peperomioides with bright light, semi-regular watering, and some light feeding in the spring and summer months and it will thrive. Plus, Chinese money plants are easy to propagate, and a healthy plant will produce plenty of offshoots which you can separate to create more plants—one of the reasons it is called the friendship plant. Share them with friends, or keep them for yourself. Once you have a pancake plant, you will never need to buy another one!
The Pilea peperomioides thrives in medium to bright indirect light. Rotate your plant regularly to keep it looking symmetrical. Avoid locations that receive harsh, direct light as it will burn the delicate leaves.
This evergreen perennial is considered to have medium water needs. Allow the plant to nearly dry out between waterings and then water well.
