This plant has beautiful bright green round pad like leaves on succulent stems. Frequently seen in Scandinavian interiors, cuttings were first bought back to Europe by a Norwegian missionary. Native to the southwestern Yunnan province of China.

Light conditions: position in a warm, bright position with indirect light. The plant responds quickly to sunlight, so it is worth rotating regularly to ensure even growth. Too low light will result in pale leaves.
Neediness: an easy to care for, low maintenance houseplant. Needs dusting regularly to ensure the plant can photosynthesise efficiently. Worth  noting that the stems are delicate and can snap off when the plant is handled or moved, this is one of the easiest plants to propagate so stems can be placed in compost to grow a new baby Pilea!
Watering: wait until the top layer of soil is dry to the touch before watering. Water less frequently during the cooler winter months. Mist regularly to keep it happy. Avoid over-watering as this can cause root rot.
Ideal location: bedrooms, living rooms and studies
Rate of growth: moderate, can eventually reach a height and spread of 30cm
Temperature: can be kept at normal room temperature. Do not let the temperature drop below 10c.
Pets: this plant is non-toxic to cats and dogs.
Sizing: W12cm x H20-30cm
Also known as:  Chinese Money Plant, Missionary Plant, Pilea Peperomioides

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
