This is one of our favourite houseplants in the office. We love the rounded, semi-succulent leaves that have a good structural quality and form a loose, spreading mound. The plant is supplied in a rounded kokodama coir pot that is cradled in a string hammock, so it's ready to hang up as soon as it is unpacked from the box. It is relatively easy to care for, so it's ideal for both the novice and more experienced indoor gardener.
- Home care: Water moderately during the warmer months, allowing the surface of the soil to dry out in between, but keep dryer in the winter. Mist with water regularly, and shelter from direct sun in the summer.
“A Swedish missionary brought in the Chinese money plant to Europe from China in 1946. The plant was growing on the CanShang Mountains in Yunnan province and that’s why it’s also known as the Chinese Missionary Plant.”
