In 1945 Pilea Peperomioides hitched a ride from China to Europe with a Norwegian missionary. He then gave the pilea’s easily propagated off-shoots to friends and family in Norway,
and from there it spread to Sweden, the UK and beyond
– earning it’s name as the "Pass It On Plant".
Made To Be Shared
Little sprouts grow around the plant.
Cut them and re-plant them!
Nurse them for a little while,
then gift them to family and friends!
Repeat as much as you like!
Pileas aren’t edible or tasty
but customers can feel good knowing that they are as natural as can be in case their pets
decide to try a bite.
We only use biologicals to treat
and grow our Pileas
– no pesticides, only IPM
and eco-friendly biological products. Take a look at our Earth Friendly Page
Our Pileas aren’t only green in colour: they drink captured rain water, eat natural fertilizers, bask in natural sunlight (which also powers our greenhouses), are protected by beneficial insects, and are packaged in recycled materials.
