Chinese Money Plant

Pilea peperomioides

The Chinese Money Plant, also known as the Pancake Plant, is very recognizable with its round, outward facing leaves. It prefers indirect light, as direct sunlight can damage it’s leaves. Because it is susceptible to root rot, it does not like to be kept in saturated soil. The soil should almost completely dry out between watering, about once per week. A sign that it is not getting enough water is if the leaves and stems begin to droop. However this can also happen if the soil is consistently too wet, so double check before watering.

Lighting Bright, indirect light Size Small to medium
Soil All-purpose Fertilizer Monthly with water soluble
