    Hi,

    I keep visiting every nursery in the city and when I ask people about the Pilea peperomioides plant the common response I get is, I think that plant does not exist. Does anyone know where I could find it? Buy it?

    Thank you,

    SV

    For such an unusual plant I would recommend contacting Phoenix Perennials in Richmond (they are currently closed for the season). They usually have a good selection of "unusuals", or they might even be able to source one for you.

    You might want to check Hawaiian Botanicals in Richmond. One of the better sources for tropicals in the area.

    If you find this plant in the lower mainland, could you post your source? I'd love to have one.

    Thanks!

    We have it in stock now at Phoenix Perennials! We've been hunting for two years to find them and they are finally here. ;-)
