Plant Bio

Pilea peperomioides (Urticaceae) is an Asiatic perennial herb that is native to Yunnan Province in Southern China at the foot of the Himalayas. For a long time, this plant has been a mystery. That is because this plant, like many other Pilea, is insignificant in economic value (weedy), and like other Pilea, not much attention was paid to it. It was found to have been brought to Norway by a Norwegian missionary in 1946, upon the expulsion of religion and foreigners by Chairman Mao. From Norway, it was distributed by friends to friends, and eventually all over the world as a houseplant.
