I gave my sister a #PileaPeperomioides and she made a pretty pot for it. We are such a great team.

The garden center I work at doesn't typically carry houseplants, so I was surprised to see a bunch of #Pilea-peperomioides among our backstock yesterday. Chose this one, which is actually a bunch of little plants in one pot. #chinesemoneyplant (Purchased 6Apr2019)

I’ve got one but he said it grows in water. It’s not doing too well so I put potting mix with it yesterday 🤞🏻

@Sussanah I don't know who "he" is but they are succulents and therefore prefer less water. More care info here: https://abeautifulmess.com/2018/08/caring-for-pilea-plants.html

Ha! Looks similar, but not the same.
