It is a flowering plants of Urticaceae plant family, native to Yunnan Province in southern China.
Pilea peperomioides is a low maintenance species that thrives in a bright spot near a window, it is best to keep the plant out of direct sunlight as too much direct sun can cause the leaves to burn, too little light can cause the leaves to fade.
Allow the top 2”-3” of the Pilea peperomioides' soil to dry between waterings. Typically, deeply watering this plant once a week will suffice, but it will depend on the amount and quality of light it is receiving. Drooping leaves can be an indication that the plant is in need of water, but always check the soil moisture a few inches below the surface to confirm your diagnosis before watering.
