Plant Care: Chinese Money Plant


Its true name is Pilea Peperomioides, but it goes by many names. The pilea likes bright, indirect light. Direct light can scorch the leaves so be aware!

A great way to water pilea is to bottom water it, which means planting it in a pot with a drainage hole then sitting the pot in a shallow dish of water until it absorbs up through the soil. Pilea likes to dry out almost completely before watering again, so wait until the soil is dry to the touch to water.

You’ll also want to rotate your pilea regularly as they will grow towards the light! So give it a quarter turn every week to keep it growing evenly all the way around.

And enjoy! They are a lovely plant that gives a great pop of color to any space.
