The truly stylish indoor tree. From the South American Rain Forest to Feng Shui high society.
Caring for your Pachira (money tree)
Light - Find a bright spot for your money tree, out of direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves. It thrives under fluorescent light, making this small tree an ideal office plant.
Water - Money tree plant likes water in big gulps. Water thoroughly, until water comes out the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot, then allow the top 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) to dry out between waterings. Take care not to allow the potting mix to get soggy, which can cause root rot. And avoid getting water on the trunk, which causes stem rot. Cut back on water in the winter when growth slows.
Top Tip - Recreate your Pachira’s natural rainforest environment and mist it regularly.
