Pilea Peperomioides, also known as Chinese money plant or pancake plant has easily become one of the world’s most favourite household plants of all. The beautiful round leaves are incredibly elegant and their adorable size and decorative nature, makes Pileas the perfect statement piece for any home dining or side table. It was really difficult to get your hands on one. Pilea peperomioides appreciates a location with plenty of light but doesn’t do well in direct sunlight. This means it’s a good idea to avoid any locations that get a lot of direct afternoon sun; a thin, sheer curtain like this one can help to partly block the sun’s scorching rays without depriving your Pilea of light.

Pilea peperomioides does well when kept slightly moist but excess water should never be allowed to left standing in the pot for extended periods of time. As with all plants, the amount of water your Pilea needs depends on the amount of light it’s getting, but watering once a week during Wintertime and twice a week during Summer should be a good place to start.

If you don’t possess the greenest of thumbs, don’t worry! There are plenty of low-maintenance houseplants that thrive with just minimal care, and we’re happy to highlight some of them for you.

First up is the oxalis triangularis. The oxalis family is large and varied, With varieties hardy in all climates in the United States, there are two that are also good choices for growing indoors as long-lived houseplants – oxalis triangularis and regnelli. Though both are hardy outdoors in zones 6-11, they adapt well to indoor conditions and thrive indoors year round.  With its fanciful and intriguing purple foliage, let’s take a closer look at oxalis triangularis.

Incredibly long lived, oxalis triangularis often become "heirloom plants" passed down from generation to generation within a family. We often hear customers’ stories of the plants becoming a cherished family tradition. One customer told us she was enjoying the same bulbs as their great, great-grandmother who harvested them as a child 107 years ago! 

Indoors, keep your oxalis triangularis in a sunny spot. You will find the deep purple foliage really brings out the vibrant green of other plants, and the color contrast makes your other houseplants seem to glow with health.
