The Pilea Peperomioides, also known as the Pilea (Pie-lee-uh), the friendship plant (or the Chinese money plant) is a true gem. It’s playful, very pleasing to the eye, and fairly easy to care for.

The plant grows like crazy and then grows little babies so you can share it with friends! Each time I look at mine, I can’t help but smile. Their quirky form is like no other plant.

The Pilea hasn’t been a houseplant for very long. In the 1940s, the plant was brought to Norway by a Norwegian missionary who was living in China.

The plant slowly spread through people sharing its “pups,” and within the last few years, it has made its way here to the States. I love learning/reading the history about this plant. You can literally track it back to its exact location and the person who brought it and shared it.
