Pilea peperomioides or Chinese Money Plant. Also known as the "friendship plant" because of its ability to produce small buds that you can detach to give to friends.
This beautiful and easy to care for plant is native to Yunnan, southern China. It is known to bring good luck and prosperity to those who have it. Perhaps it is because of its unique coin-shaped leaves. Without a doubt, the vibrant deep green of the Pilea will add a natural element to your decor. Plus, its leaves stay lush all year round.
The Chinese Money Plant is perfect to enhance a corner of the living room or to brighten up the office desk, as it is no more than 30 cm high and has a very positive symbolic meaning.
The Pilea is safe for pets and children.
Light: this plant loves indirect light, although it adapts without major problems to environments with little light, which makes it ideal for any type of environment.
Watering: watering should be moderate, when the substrate is practically dry
Humidity: this plant likes humidity. We recommend spraying it 2 or 3 times a week.
Fertiliser: to keep it beautiful and lush, fertilise it regularly. Once a fortnight in summer and monthly in winter.
What to avoid
Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as its leaves may wilt. Placing it near a window with plenty of indirect light is the key to maintaining its beautiful, deep, acid apple-green colour for a long time.
This plant does not like to be exposed to outside draughts or temperatures below 5 degrees Celsius.
It is said that if you give this plant as a gift, luck and wealth will come to you.
