A fun, funky plant with round, coin-shaped leaves that also earn it the name “pancake plant”. This Chinese native was discovered in 1946 by a Norwegian missionary. He brought the plant home to Norway and before long many people were growing and sharing money plants. The plants readily produce “babies” that can be removed to grow more plants. Grows tall with age into a more narrow, tree-like form.
Perfect for growing in a pot near a bright window indoors, or outdoors in the summer on a shaded deck, patio, or porch. Potted Pilea grown outdoors in the summer can be brought back inside when temperatures are expected to fall below 50°F (10°C). Can be grown outdoors year-round in frost-free climates, in a pot or in the ground.
