The Chinese money plant (Pilea) is an old-fashioned plant that was forgotten over time, but which is now fully on the rise again. This super fun, retro plant has funny round leaves that look like small pancakes. The Pilea is originally from China and is therefore also called “Chinese Money Plant”. From China, this plant made its way to Scandinavia, where it was quickly picked up by all kinds of interior design magazines. Nowadays we can also enjoy the company of this fun plant in the Netherlands. The pancake plant is super trendy and easy to propagate. With a little patience and love you can create your own Pilea family: a great idea for both your interior and your health! The pancake plant has an air-purifying effect, which means that it produces extra oxygen and breaks down harmful substances. This improves your living environment, personal health and mood!
The classic terracotta pot included with the pancake plant is ideal to create more warmth in your interior.
Give the plant a bit of water once a week.
Place the plant in a light spot, but not in direct sunlight.

Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
