On sale due to lower leaf loss/damage which occurred several months ago when these plants arrived with us - since then they have been under our grow lights and have pushed out lots of new growth up top. If you don't like the leggier look, you can chop and propagate the top half of the plant, planting it lower down in it's own pot. See first 4 photos for examples. 5 plants available.
Pot size (diameter): 13 cm, Approx Height: 20 - 25 cm.
Supplied in a plastic pot. Fits our Alicante Plant Pot 15 x 14cm.
The Pilea Peperomioides 'Sugar' is one of the variegated sisters to the regular 'Chinese Money Plant'. 'Sugar' is characterised by it's and frilled edges and speckled variegation which covers most of the leaves surface.
You Might also be interested in our set of Pilea Peperomiodes 'Sugar' and 'Mojito'.
As an added bonus, this plant is one of our pet friendly options for those of you with furry friends who like to nibble on your plants!
The Pilea Peperomiodes is a personal favourite of mine because of its fast growing nature and ability to produce an abundance of pups which can then be shared with family and friends.
With round green saucers for leaves which hang delicately on the end of a long, thin stalk, you can see why people refer to this as the UFO plant. Also known as the Chinese money plant, the friendship plant, missionary plant, pancake plant or pass-it-on-plant.
If you’re looking for a pop of green and a plant that looks out of this world then this is the guy for you - just be prepared for him to bring his whole family too!
We have an in depth Care & Propagation Guide written up on our blog!
Light: Avoid direct sunlight and low light conditions.
Water: Wait until the plant dries out and then water thoroughly but do not let it sit in water. Pilea will start to droop when they are thirsty. Cut back significantly on watering during the winter.
Food: Apply a weak fertiliser up to two times a month during the growing season.
Humidity: Pilea will tolerate a normal home humidity but thrive in high humidity.
