I'm mad about mist, if you mist me regularly I'll love you forever!


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


Keep it consistent, once the top two inches of soil are dry, water me so I keep looking my best.

About Chinese Money Plant

The Chinese Money Plant is the perfect coffee table houseplant, only growing to a maximum height of 50cm. The leaves of this indoor plant can be delicate and break easily; luckily, it's fast-growing and will recover quickly.

The Money Plant is great for novice plant parents, just keep them in bright, indirect sunlight and water them regularly to keep their lucky charms flowing. Give them a regular mist to keep them happy and healthy but be careful not to overwater them or leave them sitting in water, as this can cause their unique leaves to droop. The Pilea Peperomioides prefers it pretty hot at 18-29°C, but it can handle as low as 10°C.

If your home doesn't get lots of natural light, this shade-tolerant houseplant is perfect for you. To make it even better, it's pet-friendly and air-purifying.
