Note on Appearance

While we strive to send plants that match the photos, please note that each Money Tree is unique. Variations in trunk braid pattern, leaf size, and overall shape may occur. The number of trunks may vary between 3-5 per pot, depending on the size and availability.

Sun: Indirect

Money Trees prefer bright, indirect sunlight. They can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially in the morning or late afternoon, but prolonged exposure to intense sunlight can scorch their leaves. Place your Money Tree near a window where it can receive plenty of natural light without being directly exposed to the sun's rays.

Light: Medium

Pachira Aquatica Money Tree will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

Water: When half dry

Money Trees prefer slightly moist soil but are susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Allow the top half of soil to dry out between waterings, then water the plant thoroughly until water drains from the bottom of the pot. Empty any excess water from the saucer to prevent waterlogging. During the winter months, reduce watering frequency as the plant's growth slows down.

Humidity: Medium

Money Trees can tolerate average indoor humidity levels, but they appreciate slightly higher humidity if possible. You can increase humidity around your Money Tree by placing a tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the pot to create a humid microclimate. Misting the leaves occasionally can also help boost humidity levels, but avoid overdoing it to prevent fungal issues.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Money Trees are generally considered pet-friendly, as they are not toxic to cats or dogs. However, ingesting large quantities of any plant material can still cause gastrointestinal upset in pets. Keep an eye on your furry friends to ensure they don't nibble on your Money Tree leaves, and consider placing the plant out of reach if you have particularly curious pets.

Pro Tip

Rotate Regularly: To encourage even growth and prevent your Money Tree from leaning towards the light source, rotate it regularly. This ensures that all sides of the plant receive adequate sunlight, promoting balanced growth and a more symmetrical appearance. Aim to rotate your Money Tree every few weeks to maintain its overall health and aesthetic appeal.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
