The MoneyTree 'Pachira'

The MoneyTree 'Pachira'


Origin: Central and South America.

Botanical Name: Pachira aquatica, Guiana Chestnut

With a braided trunk and lush, glossy leaves, It’s no wonder this plant is so popular.
It is said to bring luck and wealth, adds vitality to any home, and is also highly-rated as an air-purifier!

☀️  Light: 

Position your Money Tree in medium to bright indirect light, turning it every time you water it for even growth and leaf development. This plant will also adapt and do well under fluorescent lights.

💧 Water: 

Prefers deep but infrequent watering. To prevent root rot, make sure your plant is never standing in water. Let the top 2”- 4” of the soil dry out between waterings. Your Money Tree requires less water in the winter months, when growth slows.

☁️  Humidity: 

Prefers a bit of extra humidity so make sure you increase the humidity in the winter months with a pebble tray or a humidifier. It will also appreciate regular misting year round.

🌡 Temperature: 

Most comfortable in temperatures between 18-26 °C.

🧉 Food: 

 Feed once a month in the spring and summer when it is producing new leaves with a water-soluble, well-balanced plant food. No fertilizer is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows. Always make sure the soil is damp before applying any fertilizer.

🐾  Toxicity: 

This plant is safe for pets, according to the ASPCA.

➕ Additional Tips:

Try not to move your Money Tree very often, they prefer to stay in the same spot. If you do need to relocate, you may see a bit of leaf drop. Not to worry, it will adjust.
