RARE Large Pilea Peperomioides (Chinese Money Plant) Live Houseplant
This Pilea Peperomioides, also known as the Chinese Money Plant, is one of the most popular, yet rare and hard-to-find indoor pants. They are often called the "friendship plant" because, due to their low availability, most people have better luck finding them at plant swaps or getting a cutting from a friend than in traditional nurseries or garden centers.
But one all is you need to decorate a whole room or entryway! Its bright green pancake-shaped leaves and central upright stem, surrounded on all sides by these characteristic perky leaves, provide an elegant and welcoming burst of color against white walls.
Best of all, this plant is rated as non-toxic by the ASPCA and therefore safe to keep around pets and small children.
Pilea peperomioides is a surprisingly adaptable and easy to care for plant. All it needs is bright, indirect light and consistent waterings. If it receives light from a single nearby window, I would also recommend rotating it a few times per week to keep its round shape and the leaves growing evenly on all directions.
The plant will also reward you with new growth regularly, producing "pups" - offshoots that can be cut away and propagated as separate plants to keep as extra greenery, or to continue to the tradition and pass on to a friend.

There are certain risks associated with shipping live plants. While we take all precautions to make sure the plants arrive in good conditions, some transit shock is normal. To alleviate this shock, water your plant lightly upon arrival and wait at least 1 full week before transplanting it to a new container. In the event that the plant is severely damaged during transit, please contact us within 48 hours with a description of the condition of your plant upon arrival and a picture, and we will gladly mail a replacement.
