Chinese money plant

The Chinese Money Plant or Pilea peperomioides is a popular houseplant with lovely rounded leaves. These compact plants are small, so they won’t get in the way of your cooking, but striking enough to be noticed too.

They look great on a tabletop or breakfast bar, and being tropical plants, they’ll be delighted with a warm, humid environment - so the more you cook, the happier they’ll be! Chinese money plants are also rumoured to bring wealth and abundance to those around them, so placing one in the heart of your family home is symbolic of a happy, healthy family too.

This hybrid variety will only grow to a max of 4 feet tall, so it won’t take up too much space in your kitchen while also bringing lots of lovely greenery into the room. Another tropical plant, the banana plant, will also enjoy a hot and humid environment, meaning a busy kitchen is the ideal spot for it to thrive.
