'Chinese Money Plant' Pilea peperomioides
Also known as the 'Missionary Plant' or 'Pass-It-On-Plant'
A delightful little succulent, with smooth, round, fleshy, mid-green leaves on long stalks. If you are looking for a chic, modern houseplant, then this is it. Very much on trend with cool, minimalist, urban appeal. Moderate to bright, indirect light but will tolerate partial shade. Avoid direct sunlight.
Water when the soil has begun to dry out. Note: the leaves will begin to droop if the plant needs to be watered. Don’t let the plant sit in water.
Use a pebble tray or water surround.
Apply a half-strength balanced fertilizer once or twice a month during the growing season.
