Pilea – Chinese Money Plant

The Pilea also known as ‘he Chinese money plant’ is a species of flowering plant in the nettle family Urticaceae, native to Southern China. The Pilea prefers bright light, with no direct sunlight, a well-draining potting soil, and a pot with drainage holes is necessary. The soil needs to mostly dry out between waterings. To keep your Chinese money plant nicely shaped, rotate it at least once a week to prevent it from getting lopsided.
