Plant Features

The Money Tree, scientifically known as Pachira aquatica, is a popular plant in both home and office environments, famed for its braided trunk and lush, green leaves. It is often associated with good fortune and financial prosperity in Feng Shui. This plant typically has five to seven leaves per stem, and its braided trunk is not a natural feature but rather a result of cultivation. The Money Tree is appreciated for its hardiness and ease of care, making it ideal for both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts.

Caring for a Money Tree involves addressing a few key needs. Overwatering is a common issue, indicated by yellowing leaves. This plant prefers to dry out slightly between waterings. Brown leaf tips can be a sign of low humidity or inconsistent watering. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can lead to leggy growth. Regular dusting of the leaves is important for photosynthesis and overall health. It's also crucial to watch for pests like spider mites and scale insects, which can be controlled with neem oil or insecticidal soap.

Dramatic, striking

Thriving in bathroom window where it has grown dramatically. Very striking and fills the whole bottom window and is inching up to the upper window.
