Pilea • The Friendship Plant

Pilea • The Friendship Plant

from 12.00

The Pilea peperomioides is also known as the Chinese Money Plant, Pancake, or UFO Plant. My favorite nickname though, is The Friendship Plant.

Native to China, it is believed that a Norwegian missionary took cuttings with him when he returned home in the 1940s. And the way that this plant spread in popularity was through the sharing of its pups (babies). This is also why this plant is also known as the Friendship Plant.

Inspired by that history, I have two Pilea sizes available, that way you can purchase another Pilea Pin for a friend or loved one. So that you too can continue to help share this beautiful plant.

There is an option to purchase a discounted Friendship Set, which will include one Large Pilea Pin and one Small Pilea Pin, both on one card. If you would like each on their own card back, please let me know in the comments section when you checkout.
