This rare variety of variegated Chinese Money Plant is a must-have in any plant collection.
Pilea peperomioides has become the houseplant on everyone’s wish list. Easy to propagate, is also known as the "Pass it on" plant due to its ability to produce little pups that can be removed from the original plant pot and repoted in individual containers to become a new plant.
Native from China, Money Plant has a superficial resemblance to pennyworths. Grows 30 cm tall and wide, it is an erect, evergreen perennial, with round, dark green leaves up to 10 cm in diameter.
Light: Bright indirect light. Because P. peperomioides is so responsive to the sun and such a fast grower, it has a tendency to send all its leaves in one direction. Rotate the plant 2-3 times a week to avoid a slanted stem.
Water: Money plants stock water in their leaves, so avoid overwatering as it can lead to limp leaves and eventually plant death. Allow the compost to fully dry out in between waterings.
Watering frequency will depend on your house temperature and the amount of sunlight your plant is getting. Usually, allow 10 to 12 days in between waterings and always check its compost before watering.
