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.
