Chinese Money Plant Pilea

Here is a simple care guide for your Chinese Money Plant to have fast, healthy growth:


They love medium to bright indirect sunlight. Rotate the pot once a week as the leaves stretch towards light. They can tolerate a couple hours of direct intense sunlight in a day but limit this exposure to avoid burning the leaves.



Water when the top 1 inch of soil is dry, which will be more frequently with warmer temperatures. If the leaves curl when the soil is dry, it may be a sign of underwatering.


Temperature and Humidity

Keep your plant in moderate temperatures (18-23℃) and normal room humidity. Mist and wipe the leaves to remove dust and add some humidity. 


The Chinese Money Plant is a great beginner plant, and with a bit of attention will thrive in your home or office.
