Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Chinese Money plant Care Guide

Water regularly but allow the top half of the soil to dry out between waterings. Do not let sit in excess water as they do not like sitting in cold, soggy soil. Wipe the leaves regularly to keep them shiny and free from dust-clogged pores. Its quite usual for white dots to appear on your Pilea - this is simply excess minerals from water that is perspired from the plant.

What is the Chinese Money plant Known For?

The Chinese Money Plant, or Pilea Peperomioides, is renowned for its unique coin-shaped leaves, which have led to it being considered a symbol of good fortune and financial prosperity. Its popularity is not only due to its charming appearance but also its ease of care, making it a beloved houseplant for both novices and experienced plant enthusiasts.

What Is the History of the Chinese Money plant?

The Chinese Money Plant hails from the Yunnan Province of China, where it was discovered by a Norwegian missionary in the early 20th century. It was then brought to Europe, where it became widely circulated among plant lovers through sharing of cuttings, rather than commercial horticulture, earning it the nickname "the friendship plant."

Where Does the Chinese Money plant Originate?

Originating from the mountainous regions of Southern China, the Chinese Money Plant thrives in a moist, temperate environment. It's accustomed to the dappled sunlight of forest floors, which is key to replicating in home settings for the plant to thrive.

How Do You Care for a Chinese Money plant?

Caring for a Chinese Money Plant involves placing it in bright, indirect light with some direct sunlight, ideally in a warm room. Water the plant when the topsoil feels dry, reducing frequency in the winter months. These plants prefer a well-draining potting mix and can benefit from regular misting to maintain humidity.

Are Chinese Money plant Toxic to Pets?

Yes, the Chinese Money Plant is safe for pets. It's one of the few houseplants that are non-toxic to cats and dogs, so pet owners can breathe easy with this plant in their home. However, as with any non-toxic plant, it's still best to prevent pets from chewing on the leaves to avoid any potential upset.

    I was disappointed with some of my plants after delivery. Some had broken stems and leaves. Also a lot of the soil in the pots had fallen out. Had to top up two pots. The spider plant had several stems broken and the dolphin plant was in a bad way also. Won’t be ordering from them again.
