Pilea peperomioides, is a species of flowering plant in the nettle family Urticaceae, native to Yunnan and Sichuan provinces in southern China.



If you’re wanting something pretty different and unique and not too difficult to raise,  the UFO plant is a good start. Rich green circular leaves, sitting on long, thin stems draping over the trunk makes the Chinese money tree a living art piece. As a bonus, it’s one of the higher ranking air purifying plants you can find.




Keep away from direct sunlight, indirect, bright light conditions are best.


Keeping your Pilea moderately moist, not wet, keeps this plant happy. The root ball should not be let to dry out completely. This easy care gem does well in slight humidity, but does not require misting.


Choose a rich quick draining soil.
