Chinese Money Plant

Chinese Money Plants are known for their unique appearance and easy maintenance.

  • Light: Keep the Chinese Money Plant in lots of bright, indirect light. Make sure to keep it out of direct sun as that will cause burn marks on the leaves.
  • Water: Keep soil very lightly moist and take care not to let it sit in water or become too soggy. You can also let the soil dry out a little between waterings, especially during the cooler months.
  • Humidity:Average room humidity is fine, however, if you find the edges of your leaves are crisp or ‘burning’ you should raise the humidity levels.
  • Temperature: The Chinese Money Plant doesn't like temperatures below 10°C, optimum temperatures are 13°C to 30°C – make sure the temperature doesn’t swing wildly either.
  • Soil: Use all-purpose soil that is well draining to ensure the plant does not remain overly wet after watering.
  • Fertilizer: Feed once a month in spring and summer. You should also feed the plant when the mother plant is producing baby plants.
  • Toxicity: The Chinese Money Plant is a non-toxic plant.
  • Propagation: One of the reasons why the Chinese Money Plant is so loved is the ease of propagation. If your plant is happy and healthy it will naturally produce baby plants on its stem and in the surrounding soil. One these baby plants are big enough to function on their own, you can remove them. Baby plants growing in the soil next to the mother plant are the easiest – once they have grown to a size of around 5-7cm you can cut their connection to the mother plant. Use a sharp, clean knife to do this and make sure to cut the plant beneath the soil so you can retain the roots the baby plant has produced. Simply pot these into a new pot with moist soil.

    If your mother plant is producing baby plants on its main stem, use a clean, sharp knife to remove them. Thereafter, place the baby plant into a glass with clean water until they develop their own root system. Plant them into moist soil once it has grown roots.
