This is low maintenance and good luck! A Common Name is ‘Money Plant’ since the leaves look like coins. This plant is a perennial succulent and grows more wide than tall. The leaves are round and bright green. This plant does flower, mini white flowers, and can blossom during the Spring. Fast grower and easy to propagate!

The Dirt

Native to Yunnan and Souther China. This plant is extremely easy to propagate which is how it spread across the world and to the US.

Part Sun

This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Water once a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.

Pet Friendly

Yay! This plant is not toxic to our furry friends (regardless, you don’t want them to chew on this beauty).
