Pilea peperomioides is often called the Chinese money plant and it also goes under the name of a pancake or missionary plant.
This charming house plant has slightly succulent stems and attractive leaves which are rounded, to abut 10cm in length. It is the shape of the foliage that gives it the common name 'money plant'.
It does produce small pale green flowers which can be tinged with pink but it is grown mainly for the green foliage. It is also known as the 'pass it on' plant as many people who see it tend to want one!
