Pilea Peperomoides (Chinese Money Plant)


SKU: 8000000000001586 Category:


With circular leaves that seem to hang magically in the air, it’s not surprising that Pilea Peperomoides is often called the UFO Plant. Here in the UK, the plant’s most popular name is the Chinese Money Plant.

Though this highly ornamental houseplant has been popular with gardening enthusiasts since the 1940s, the plant remained unclassified by botanists until the 1980s. If you believe in Chinese folklore, plant a coin in your Pilea’s pot then wait for a win on the lottery!
