Pilea Peperomioides 3.5" pot
The Pilea Peperomioides is known by many names, including the Chinese money plant, the UFO plant, the friendship plant, or the missionary plant. Noted for its unique pad-like foliage in an eye-catching bright shade of green, this plant has been popular in Scandanavia for years.
Pilea peperomioides is a low maintenance species that thrives in a bright spot near a window, but it is best to keep the plant out of direct sunlight as too much direct sun can cause the leaves to burn. However, too little light can cause the leaves to fade and the plant's overall health to suffer, so take time to find a spot that's just right.
The Pilea peperomioides thrives in medium bright indirect light. Rotate your plant regularly to keep it looking symmetrical. Avoid locations that receive harsh, direct light as it will burn the delicate leaves.
This house plant is considered to have medium water needs. Allow the plant to nearly dry out between watering and then water well. The leaves of a Pilea peperomioides will begin to droop when it dries out, which is a good indication that it’s time for watering.
