Pilea peperomioides ‘Chinese Money Plant’


Also known as ‘Pancake Plant’ or ‘Missionary Plant’.

Discovered by a Scandinavian Missionary worker on a visit to China and only relatively recently categorised at Kew in the 1970’s, this amazing plant is also known by many other names, including ‘The Pass It On Plant’ because it naturally produces many plantlets, if conditions are favourable.
