These little Pilea peperomiodes are currently all the rage, often passed on as a lucky plant ("lucky coin"), Friendship Plant or Chinese Money Plant.

One of the easiest plants to propagate from cuttings with their little pups shooting out making it easy to pick them off and plant. They actually don’t even need to be very large, they can be just a year old and give you little babies (usually in the spring). Although most of the Pilea come from Tropical America, this species occurs only in China. Where is naturally grows on shady, damp rocks in forests at high altitudes. It is very rare and possibly endangered in the wild. However, it is kept in China and the wider world as an ornamental plant, if you can get your hands on it.

Since constant temperatures and high humidity have a positive effect on the plants growth, this plant species is suitable for planting in rocky terrariums. And if you hate watering or just plain forget, they will let you know you haven’t been on par with you're watering methods by getting a few yellowing or curling leaves, but don't panic, they tend to recover quickly. 

They require consistent indirect bright light throughout the day. And can handle an hour or so of direct light in both mornings and evenings. They have the tendency to grow towards the light so rotating them every now and then can help them grow straight. 
Plants come in a coir peat pot, ready for direct planting into your larger planter.
