Plant Care Needs

• ☀: Thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Can tolerate some direct sunlight, particularly in the morning or late afternoon, but avoid prolonged exposure to intense sun.

• 💦: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly, then allow excess water to drain away. Water less frequently in winter.

• 🪨: Well-draining potting mix is essential. Use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil to ensure proper drainage. We recommend our Luxuriously Moist soil blend, or a combination of The Mix & cHuNkY mOnKeY!

• 🌡️: Prefers average room temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Protect from cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.

• ☁: Adaptable to normal indoor humidity levels but benefits from occasional misting to increase humidity, especially in dry indoor environments.

• ✂: Easily propagated from offsets or stem cuttings. Remove offsets or take stem cuttings with at least one node and place them in water or moist potting mix until roots develop.

• ⚖: Low maintenance. Suitable for beginners and experienced gardeners alike.

• 💭:

  • Rotate the plant regularly to ensure even growth and prevent leaning towards the light source.
  • Clean the leaves periodically with a damp cloth to remove dust and maintain their glossy appearance.
  • Chinese Money Plant is non-toxic to pets, making it a safe option for households with cats, dogs, and other animals.
  • The plant may produce small white flowers in the right conditions, adding an extra touch of beauty to its foliage.
