Pot size (diameter): 27 cm, Approx Height: 55 cm.
This plant is MASSIVE in a 27cm diameter pot, a real statement piece for those of you who want the impact of a mature Pilea without having to wait for a young plant to grow.
Photographed next to our 8 cm baby Pilea for scale.
In the running for the most Instagrammed plant of the last few years, 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.
One of our pet friendly options for those of you with furry friends who like to nibble on your plants.
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!
Please note that with mature Pilea like this it is expected for their to be some discolouration and imperfections to the larger & older leaves.
We have an in depth Care & Propagation Guide written up on our blog!
Light: Avoid direct sunlight and low light conditions.
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.
