Botanical name: Pilea Peperomioides

It's not too much effort, and very rewarding. The truth is out there. (Novice)
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.
Not too tall at about 1.5 feet in height and 6” - 10” in diameter.
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 humus rich quick draining soil.
Pet friendly. Though there are a few kittens that enjoy the odd nibble or too.
