The leaves of this unique plant look like coins!

The Chinese Money Plant is a long-time favorite among house plant owners, no collection is complete without a money plant. This one is from East Asia, but it is not so distantly related to the nettles which grow wild in Britain.

It has many stems which hold unique flat, round, green leaves! It is easy to care for and it’s the perfect plant for new gardeners. It can survive well if you forget to water or feed it, and with proper attention, it will grow glossy green leaves and beautify your home! 

  • This plant is one of the plants that NASA recommended to remove impurities from the air
  • Easy to care for and great for beginners on the plant journey
  • Non-toxic for pets
  • Mature Pilea peperomioides produce baby plants that grow from their roots. 
  • Each plant grows slightly differently - ss it matures, it expands more vertically and it can start producing very small flowers
  • Scottish Botanist George Forrest was one of the first westerners to explore the province of Yunnan in the South West of China - he was the first one to collect Pilea peperomioides in 1906 and in 1910
