**THIS PLANT COMES WITH BASIC BLACK POT**
The Pilea Peperomioides is known by many names, including the Chinese Money Plant, the UFO plant, or the missionary plant. Noted for its unique pad-like foliage in an eye-catching bright shade of green, this plant has been popular in Scandanavia for years. Cuttings of the plant were taken from its native China by a Norwegian missionary who helped propagate it in Europe and grow its popularity there. It’s only become widely available in the USA in the past few years, but has quickly become a favorite of plant enthusiasts on this side of the world too. Pilea peperomioides is a low maintenance species that thrives in a bright spot near a window, but it is best to keep the plant out of direct sunlight as too much direct sun can cause the leaves to burn. However, too little light can cause the leaves to fade and the plant’s overall health to suffer, so take time to find a spot that’s just right. ROUTINE MAIN Always be sure to assess your plant’s watering needs upon receiving it. Before giving your plant a drink, it is best to check the moisture level in the soil first to ensure it isn’t moist right beneath the surface. Also, consider aerating the soil of your plant before the initial watering. We compact the soil to avoid shifting during transit, so aerating can help the soil breathe and allow moisture to be released. Allow the top 2”-3” of the Pilea peperomioides’ soil to dry between waterings. Typically, watering this plant once a week will suffice. Drooping leaves can be an indication that the plant is ready for water, but always test the soil to confirm your diagnosis. Rotate your plant periodically to ensure even growth on all sides and dust the leaves often so the plant can photosynthesize efficiently. When dusting the leaves, also take the opportunity to inspect the undersides and keep an eye out for pests. Remember each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations. Pay attention to the condition of your Pilea Peperomioides and its watering needs and you will have a long and happy relationship.
