Pilea is photographed in a Basalt and Charlie pot. The package contains a plant in a plastic pot.
About the plant: Pilea peperomioides has several names. We can find it as the so-called Missionary plant (because of its historical pilgrimage), chinese money plant or pancake plant – the last two names were earned by the specific round shape of its leaves. They resemble pancakes or pennies, so the plant should bring you wealth and happiness. This type of Mojito is characterized by a light green tinge that might resemble mint leaves. It is an evergreen semi-succulent plant of the nettle family. It comes from the Chinese province of Yunnan and, as we already mentioned, its history resembles a novel. It was discovered several times and then forgotten until it finally caught on among Nordic growers. It is therefore a plant that was only propagated at the amateur level and was known to botanists only from the 1980s.

Every plant is different, just like us humans. Please allow for a possible deviation in appearance compared to the product photo.
Rather, the plant likes a shadier location with diffused sunlight. Can't stand direct sun. The more indirect light the Pilea has, the stronger and larger its leaves will be. In winter, we can place the plant on a south-facing window.
The best method of propagation is to separate a small plant growing from the underground rhizomes of a large Pilea. If the shoot has few roots, let it take root in water for a while before transplanting it into the soil.
