Care

Money Tree, or Pachira, is a small tropical tree that grows in moist, dense, tropical forests around the world. The money tree prefers high humidity and has the greatest tolerance and can adapt to any amount of sunlight. This plant is easy to care for and is able to be braided and trained into topiary. Practitioners of feng shui consider pachira to be good luck; to ensure your good fortune and enjoyment, please follow these simple care instructions:

WATER: Keep moist at all times but not wet. Best method is to water the plant thoroughly and then allow to dry slightly. Do not allow standing water. Leaves will display brown tips if not enough water.

LIGHT: Low-high artificial indoor light or near a bright window but no direct sunlight.

TEMPERATURE: 65-80F. Full range of normal indoor temperatures avoiding direct drafts from air conditioning or heating vents.

FERTILIZER: Apply a balanced house plant food at ½ strength every 2-3 weeks during the growing months.
