The Pilea peperomioides is also known as the Pancake Plant or UFO Plant because of its quirky, coin-shaped leaves. This easy-care plant is a self-propagator – it produces sweet little babies or “pups” on its own, which pop up from the soil surrounding the mother plant.

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.
