Pilea are known for their bright green, coin-shaped leaves. They grow well in dry conditions, can adapt to low light areas, and are fast-growing, making them low-maintenance and great for beginner plant owners.

A healthy and happy Pilea will sprout tiny “pups” that you can propagate and add to your plant collection or share with friends!

Originally from the southwestern Yunnan province of China, The leaves layer on top of each other, giving it the appearance of large green coins—hence its nickname The Chinese Money Plant. This plant is thought to bring good fortune, money, and abundance to its owner, contributing to its popularity as a housewarming or hostess gift.

Your Pilea will do best in a bright, indirect sunny spot in your home. Even though this plant is part of the succulent family, do not place your Pilea in direct sunlight since it will scorch the leaves. In order to prevent your Pilea from growing lopsided, rotate it at least 2-3 times a week since it grows towards the sun. This plant can adapt to lower light areas, but the leaves will turn a darker green and the plant will spread out more.
Allow the soil to dry between waterings, as Pilea do not like soggy soil. Watch the leaves—when they start looking a tad droopy, it’s time to water your plant. In warmer weather, they need to be watered more frequently.
