GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The Pilea Peperomioides is known by many names, including the Chinese Money Plant, the UFO plant, or the Missionary plant.
  • Known for its unique pad-like foliage in an eye-catching bright shade of green, this plant has been popular in Scandanavia for years.
  • Cuttings of the plant were taken from its native China by a Norwegian missionary who helped propagate it in Europe and grow its popularity there.
  • It's only become widely available in the USA in the past few years but has quickly become a favorite of plant enthusiasts on this side of the world too.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It prefers well-drained potting soil.
  • Use high-quality organic potting soil. One that's based on peat moss or coir fiber is the best.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • For best results, use a general liquid houseplant fertilizer at half strength twice during the spring and summer.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Pilea will do best in a bright, indirect sunny spot in your home.
  • Even though this plant is part of the succulent family, do not place your Pilea in direct sunlight since it will scorch the leaves.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Allow the soil to dry between waterings, as Pilea does not like soggy soil.
  • Watch the leaves—when they start looking a tad droopy, it’s time to water your plant.
