Pilea Peperomioides - Baby Pilea, Chinese money plant or some like to call them "Pancake Plants"
The sought-after houseplant of the year has joined our plant gang and you can now be proud plant parents.
Popular for its pancake-shaped, circle-like leaves and easy care, Pilea Peperomioides is a great choice for anyone, whether you're the beginner or experienced plant peeps, looking to add a little green edit to their space or show off your designer plant!
The Pilea grows well when kept slightly moist but does not enjoy wet feet (left sitting in water) As with all plants, the amount of water your Pilea needs depends on the amount of light it's receiving. You can start with once a week based on the conditions in your home and the condition of the soil. If you’re not sure whether it’s time to water yet, sticking your finger into the soil can help figure out what to do; the soil should have dried out a little but not entirely. If it’s bone dry or soaking wet, adjust your watering schedule accordingly!
Peperomioides are also responsive to the sun and such a fast grower, it has a tendency to send all its leaves in one direction. Some feel the need to rotate the plant 2-3 times a week to avoid a slanted stem.
