Full Description

Pilea peperomioides is a rare and very hard-to-find indoor plant native to southern China. We have finally built up our stock to have enough to offer you this highly sought after and easy to grow plant. The plant's bright green color contrasts wonderfully against white walls or pots, which is perhaps why it's so highly sought after in the minimalist interior design world. Also called Chinese Money Plant, Pancake Plant due to its flat, coin-shaped foliage, Pilea peperomioides has a central upright stem, surrounded on all sides by its characteristic perky flat leaves. Its also called pass-along plant or friendship plant because as your friends see yours, you can easily reach in and pull a little "pup" out of the pot and start them on their journey to having their own pass-along plant. Pilea peperomioides is spectacularly easy to grow indoors. Simply place the plant where it will receive bright but indirect light, watering regularly and shielding from the direct sun. The plant will reward you with seemingly constant growth.

Planting Information

We suggest re-potting your newly purchased Pilea peperomioides into a container 2"-4" wider in diameter, and 2-3" deeper than the container it is in currently. Use a well draining potting mix, and be sure not to disturb the roots when transplanting. We recommend adding a slow release fertilizer to the new potting mix before watering in. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a container any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. If planted too deep, the stem of the plant will be covered with soil, retaining moisture and eventually rotting. Keep in mind that this new potting mix will retain more moisture than the previous container, so watering in the beginning should be less frequent.
