101 • Chinese Money Plants

Pilea peperomioides are a beautiful, low maintenance house plant with characteristic penny shaped leaves that all shoot outwards from the central shoot. They are a vibrant pea green and need bright, but indirect light to flourish. They also need good well draining compost and prefer to dry out slightly between watering - they definitely don't want to be sitting in water! In the warmer, drier months you might need to up the watering, likewise in the cooler winter months you'll need to decrease frequency and make sure the plant isn't in too cold a room. Chinese money plants benefit from regular feeding through the growing season (Spring and Summer), use an all purpose plant food every 3 weeks for healthy growth. Keep the leaves dust free and occasionally spray them with filtered water to up the humidity levels if in drier spaces.
