The Chinese Money plant can’t have escaped you! It shines on many an Instagram and the most important thing? It’s easy to maintain. The Chinese Money plant, or Pilea Peperomioides, likes to drink water. Preferably once a week! She also likes to stand it in a light and sunny spot. Avoid direct sunlight! When she is in direct sunlight, her leaves will turn yellow and start to hang. In most cases, Pilea will soon produce baby plants. You can easily take cuttings and propagate them.
Upon delivery, you will receive not only the houseplant, but also a breathable plastic inner pot. Repotting the Pilea Peperomioides is only necessary once every 2 years. She does not prefer the material of your flowerpot.
However, the Pilea Peperomioides prefers not to live in a terracotta flowerpot. Do you want to place the plant in a terracotta house? Terracotta retains a lot of water, so the Pilea needs less water and soon suffers from root rot. Keep this in mind when watering!
