Pilea peperomioides - Chinese Money Plant


Pilea peperomioides, also known as the Chinese Money Plant, is a very quirky, upright growing plant with disc-shaped green leaves which inspired its nickname. Its coin-like leaves and bushy appearance is perfect for welcoming wealth and prosperity into your home.

Pilea is the largest genus in the flowering family Urticaceae with over 600 species widely distributed throughout the tropics to warm temperate regions (with the exception of Australis and New Zealand). Most of the species grow along the forest floor as small shrubs and are therefore suitable for the shaded conditions of the home.
