History of Chinese Money Plant
Native to Yunan Province in China, Chinese Money Plants were first brought to Europe in the 1940s by Norwegian missionary Agnar Espegren. It became incredibly popular in the 1970s and it's easy propagation earned it the name pass-it-along plant as people gifted cuttings to their friends and family.
Propagate Your Plant!
It's incredibly easy to propagate your Chinese Money Plant, simply take a cutting from a mature leaf around 2inches away from the leaf (its best to do this in late Spring). Plant into a small container filled with multipurpose compost and water until the soil is moist but not soggy. Leave in a bright spot and check its rooting progress by lightly tugging on it to feel for resistance. Mist occasionally to create a humid environment which will encourage growth.

I usually buy scented candles that are quite subtle in nature but decided to be adventurous and purchased the candle gift set leaving the choice to Earth and Vine. The scents are are not what I would usually get but smell delicious. Absolutely lovely.
This is a lovely plant and the colour of the leaves are amazing
This pot was a gift coupled with Mother-in-Law’s tongue plant and together they looked stunning! The recipient was delighted with the combo and commented on how remarkable the pot was. It truly is a gorgeous plant pot and well worth the money. Thank you!
My Ficus Ginseng Bonsai arrived in good condition. Delivery was really prompt my plant arrived the next day! The plant is continuing to grow really well. It would have been nice to have some care instructions along with it as I'm new to growing plants. Other than that I'm extremely happy with my purchase and highly recommend this service.

My aloe Vera plant arrived looking healthy and in good condition. When it grows some more I can't wait to start using it for it's health benefits as well (the plant comes in a good size but it looks pretty and I don't want to ruin it's form yet!) The maenporth planter pot adds an extra homely feeling and suits the plant really well. Very happy with my purchase and would recommend to anybody
