Chinese Money Plant
Pilea peperomioidesThese guys are beautiful, low-maintenance, and grow easily. It's like everything you're looking for in a committed relationship.
The Chinese Money Plant, unlike other plants, is true to its name as it is native to China's Yunnan Province.
This plant quickly produces new pups that are easy to propagate. Simply cut them off with a clean knife and stick them into moist soil. They can also be placed in water prior to planting—just make sure the roots get to grow at least a half inch long.
Pileas grow best in bright, indirect light and should be rotated once a week to prevent a slanted stem. If leaf curling occurs, the plant may be getting too much direct light and should be pulled back.
Size will vary, but total height is about 10 inches and planter width is 6 inches.
How to not kill me
Water once a week
If that's too hard then we suggest getting a pet rock. Water when the top two inches of soil is bone dry, or when its leaves begin to droop.
Bright and Indirect
Think bright, dappled light that streams through the classiest of sheer JC Penny curtains. The brighter the better, but direct sunlight will burn its leaves. If you see leaves curling, it's a sign your Pilea is getting too much light so just pull it furth
Slays in high humidity
It comes from the tropics so mist it frequently with a spray bottle, or use a humidifier to amp up the moisture in your space. It'll thank you by looking good and staying alive.
Overhead light is ideal
Pileas grow best if placed in an area that gets indirect light from above.
