Plant Bio

The Pilea Peperomioides originates from China where a Norwegian missionary, Agnar Espegren, found it and brought it to Norway in 1946. Mr. Espegren subsequently travelled widely in Norway and often gave basal shoots of the plant to friends. In this way the plant was effectively distributed around Norway where it is now widespread as a windowsill plant and where it is known as 'The Missionary Plant.' 

Roots

Native to Yunnan and Sichuan provinces in southern China.
