Phoebe, a Pilea Peperomioides, Chinese Money Plant, Pancake Plant, UFO Plant, or 'Pass it On Plant', is one of the OG's of the plant world - how else could it have so many nicknames?! Most of her nicknames relate to her shape - obviously - but the latter, the 'Pass it On Plant', was given to her because she's so easy to propagate!


Native to the Yunnan & Sichuan provinces of China, Phoebe has been around in the UK since 1906 and has been a popular houseplant ever since. Her flat, coin-shaped shaped leaves can grow to 15cm wide, and all she asks for is a bright spot with the odd drink!

Phoebe, Pilea Peperomioides

  • Phoebe prefers medium to bright light.

    If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:

    • Minimal shadow = lower light
    • Half shadow = indirect light
    • Full shadow = direct sun

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
