Pilea peperomioides is a fun and very easy to grow indoor plant. This popular plant is also known as Chinese Money plant, Missionary plant or Pancake plant. It originates from China, where a Norwegian missionary Agnar Espegren found it and brought cuttings home with him in the 1940s. Those plants were spread throughout Norway, and eventually the world, as people passed cuttings between friends.

Like bright light to partial shade. Avoid direct sunlight. Prefers well-drained potting soil. Make sure there are drainage holes in a pot. Let dry out slightly between waterings. In warmer, sunnier weather, it requires more watering. Occasionally wipe the leaves and mist often.

Size: 4” or 6”
