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 can adapt to many different environments with various levels of light. 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. Water the plant thoroughly and then allow to slightly dry. Do not allow standing water in pot or tray. Leaves will display brown tips if not getting enough water

LIGHT: Display in low to bright artificial light or near a bright window in indirect sunlight.

TEMPERATURE: These plants tolerate a wide range of temperatures from 60-80F. Keep away from air conditioning or heating vents.

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