Plants have slowly become a staple in modern interiors in the 21st century. With so many varieties of sizes, shapes, and color it can feel overwhelming to choose your newest plant baby. Make the choice easy with the official 2020 Plant of the Year, the Pilea Peperomioides plant! This plant is a mouthful to pronounce so it’s no surprise that it has attracted a number of nicknames like “The Chinese Money Plant”, “The UFO Plant” and “The Pancake Plant”. This plant has become a staple in plant parent’s #shelfie on Instagram for its distinct and attractive shape. Originally grown in Yunnan Province in Southwest China, the Pilea’s rounded leaves is an attention magnet in any home or apartment.
