How to care

How to care



Care Guide

Light Requirements

Bright, indirect light

This plant prefers bright, indirect light. Prolonged exposure to bright direct sunlight can discolour and damage their leaves.

Watering Schedule

Weekly watering

Weekly, allowing the soil to completely dry out between waterings. In winter, we recommend watering less frequently to prevent overwatering and root rot.


No humidity requirements

No particular humidity requirements - but can suffer in very dry environments. Misting daily can help remedy this, as well as clustering your plants.

Sad Plant Signs

Crisping or drooping leaves

Leaves crisping: suggests your plant has suffered from dry air - try misting on a regular basis. Leaves drooping: indicates your plant has been under-watered - a thorough watering should reinvigorate it. Scorched leaves: too much direct sunlight - avoid prolonged exposure to full sun

Pilea Peperomioides, Pancake Plant

The Chinese Money Plant originates from the Himalayan region of China and is a species of flowering plant in the nettle family Urticaceae. In its native habitat this round-leaved wonder grows on shady and damp rocks in forests, so it doesn’t enjoy scorching direct sunlight. Be sure to water weekly, but let soil dry out between watering sessions to prevent root rot. A symbol of abundance and good fortune in Chinese culture due to its shiny, coin-shaped leaves, this funky fellow also goes by the names of Pancake Plant and UFO Plant. Whether this auspicious houseplant brings you wealth or not, the Chinese Money Plant sure is a punchy air-purifier who will help keep toxins at bay in your home.
