It does not require direct sunlight. A Chinese Money Plant/Pennywort plant grows best in indoor/fluorescent lighting. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves.
The best temperatures are 68 to 77 F. (20-25 C.).
But it can survive in extreme conditions too like 30-35 C.
You can use our natural potting mix or you can use peat moss with sandy soil but drained well.
Chinese money plants/Pennywort plants are relatively small and very well suited to container life. They grow to a height of 8 to 12 inches (20-30 cm.). They have a very distinctive appearance – green vegetative shoots grow up and out from the crown, each ending in a single saucer-shaped leaf that can reach 4 inches (10 cm.)
