Product Overview

Pilea Sharing Plant is a unique and trendy houseplant, loved for its round leaves that look like little umbrellas or lily pads (some even say flying saucers.). A relatively small indoor plant, it does not usually grow much larger than 18 in. tall and wide, making it perfect for displaying on desks and tabletops. Its interesting look makes this plant perfect for a variety of home decor styles, including Bohemian (boho), midcentury modern, and contemporary. Pilea Sharing Plant is ideal as a focal point, but also blends well with a variety of other houseplants. As it matures, it grows more of a trunk and naturally drops some of its lower leaves, so it looks more like a miniature tree. You may find Pilea Sharing Plant sold under a variety of common names, including Chinese money plant, UFO plant, pancake plant, and pass-it-on plant. While names like Chinese money plant and pancake plant refer to its leaf shape, the Pilea Sharing Plant and pass-it-on plant come from how easy it is to share with friends. It readily produces baby plants from the roots - you can carefully remove these baby plants, if you wish, to share the houseplant love with family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Pilea Sharing Plant grows best in bright, indirect light. In too little light, the leaves typically get a little pale and the plant grows thin and stretchy. If it gets too much direct sun, you may notice sunburn, which appears as bleached patches on the leaves.
  • Water Pilea Sharing Plant as the top inch or so of the potting mix dries to the touch. Its a relatively thirsty houseplant, so you may find you want to water it once a week or more.
  • Pruning Pilea Sharing Plant typically isnt necessary, except if you wish to remove any old leaves as they age and drop off.
  • Shipping at a minimum height of 12 inches.

Prepared for shipping very well, arrived early
I was hesitant to order this online but my pilea was shipped from Costa Farms in FL and even arrived a day early. It was wrapped and protected very well and aside from losing two leaves in the shipment it’s in great shape. I feel like the price was fair for the health and size of the one I received.

    No planter. Sad plant.
    My plant looks a little sad with a few leaves missing and the ceramic planter was not included. They have them at my local store and they are making me pay extra for it. :-/

          Plant arrived healthy and in great shape. My only complaint is that it was in a plain black plastic grower pot, and did not include the 'Contemporary Planter' listed in the description and shown in the product photo. I didn't bother going through the hassle of returning since I really do like the plant itself, but didn't rate 5-stars due to the missing planter.

            Be patient! Do research
            It’s my first experience with Pilea Peperomioides and I would suggest learning about this plant before purchasing. Caring for it is super easy, since it does not need much BUT it can easy get traumatized if handled too much. It does not like to be moved around which makes shipping this plant a little complicated. The first two weeks after arriving, it looked very sad and some leaves were yellowing, browning and falling off. All signs of root rot, dehydration, lack of nutrients, low photosynthesis, ... you name it. I was sure my plant was dying. I decided to repot it and noticed the root ball was healthy! The soil seemed in good consition as well, and it was adequately moist. It turns out my plant was just being dramatic from all the shuffling in transit. A week after repoting (in the original pot and soil) and some good light, it’s all perked up and happy! I wish this information had been included in a card along with the plant. It would have saved me a lot of worry. Otherwise, I absolutely love everything about it!
