One of the easiest plants to propagate: the Chinese Money Plant. Or as it is officially called: the Pilea Peperomioides. The mother plant makes new pups right next to its trunk. If you take good care of the Pilea you will hardly be able to keep up with the pups.

Sharp scissors or knife
Vase with water
Optional: plant rooting powder
Step-by-step plan for the propagation of a Propagation Pilea Peperomioides (Chinese Money Plant)
First of all, clean the scissors or the knife. It is best to use pure alcohol or disinfectant.
Then dig out the mother plant so that you have the best view of the pups.
Then cut or chop the pup as close as possible to the mother plant.
Apply some plant rooting powder to the wound of the cutting and the mother plant. Let the powder dry thoroughly.
Don’t you have any rooting powder? That is not a problem. However, the powder can make root growth a bit faster.
