Buy Pilea peperomioides Chinese money plant or missionary plant: The Chinese money plant is one uber cool houseplant

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 25cm (+ or - 10% including the pot)
  • Pot cover: choose a 14cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot

    The glossy green leaves of this relatively low-growing houseplant are rounded and have a slightly fleshy texture. They appear on long, slender stalks and form a loose, rounded dome, which looks quite structured. A handsome addition to a window ledge, shelf or work surface, it is also quite low-maintenance and easy to grow.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water moderately during the warmer months, allowing the surface of the soil to dry out in between, but keep drier in the winter. Mist with water regularly, and shelter from direct sun in the summer.
