The Pilea peperomioides is a low-growing evergreen house plant. It produces glossy, round leaves on the ends of slender stems which grow in bunches. The Chinese Money Plant, as it’s otherwise known, is said bring luck and friendship. This little plant was first brought from its native China to Scandinavia in the ’40s, where it spread amongst amateur gardeners via cuttings, whilst remaining relatively unknown to botanists. From unusual, almost ‘underground’ beginnings, the Pilea peperomioides’ popularity has skyrocketed with the rise of Scandinavian design and more latterly the Hygge movement.
