The braided trunk of the Money Tree is said to be able to trap fortune within its folds. The five leaves typically found on a stalk are said to represent the five elements of balance: Earth, Fire, Water, Wind, and Metal. Finding a stalk with seven leaves is incredibly rare and also said to bring immense luck to the owner.
MoneyTree: A legend was born along with the cultivation of the Money Tree:
"A man who was down on his luck prayed for prosperity, and soon discovered the money tree and took it home. He soon realized that from its seeds he could cultivate many more trees. He made a business selling these beautiful trees to others and made his fortune."
That is why the Money Tree is a popular gift in East Asian culture — in business as well as personal affairs.
According to Chinese Feng Shui tradition, the leaves, with a bit of imagination look like green hands that capture happiness and good fortune, and the twisted stems store the treasure. In Asia, the plant is also called the money tree. In Feng Shui, there are several plants that can be used to promote abundance, but the Money Tree is favorable in many ways.
In terms of placement, many businesses keep a Mini Money Tree near their cash register for good fortune. Within the home, the most common placement to promote wealth is in the southeast corner.
With a braided trunk and lush, glossy leaves, it’s no wonder the Money Tree plant is so popular. Said to bring luck and wealth, this plant adds vitality to any home!
