Description: The Money Tree, scientifically known as Pachira aquatica, is a popular tropical plant admired for its unique, braided trunk and lush, glossy green leaves. Known for its association with good luck and prosperity, this plant is often kept in homes and offices for its attractive appearance and positive symbolism. The leaves are palmate, growing in clusters of five, creating a full and elegant canopy. Native to Central and South America, this evergreen plant thrives indoors, adding a touch of exotic charm and vibrant greenery to various indoor environments. The Money Tree can grow up to 6-8 feet tall indoors, making it an excellent choice for adding height and visual interest to any space.

Care Instructions:


  • Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.


  • Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil is dry. The Money Tree prefers consistently moist soil but not waterlogged. Reduce watering in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.


  • Thrives in moderate to high humidity environments. Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help maintain the necessary moisture levels, especially in dry indoor conditions.


  • Prefers temperatures between 65°F and 75°F (18°C - 24°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 50°F (10°C).


  • Use a well-draining, rich organic potting mix. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and compost works well to support healthy growth.


  • Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the fall and winter.


  • Prune to maintain the desired shape and size. Remove any dead or damaged leaves to encourage new growth and keep the plant healthy. Pruning also helps to control the plant's height and promote a fuller canopy.

Styling Tips:

  • Statement Plant: Place the Money Tree in a prominent spot where its unique braided trunk and lush foliage can be admired. Its striking appearance makes it a stunning statement piece in any room.
  • Corner Filler: Use the Money Tree as a corner filler to add height and texture to empty spaces. Its upright growth habit makes it perfect for this purpose.
  • Grouping with Other Plants: Combine with other tropical plants like ferns, calatheas, and philodendrons to create a diverse and visually appealing indoor garden.
  • Office Plant: Its association with good luck and prosperity makes the Money Tree an excellent choice for office environments. Place it near your workspace to add a touch of greenery and positive energy.
  • Modern Decor: The elegant, glossy leaves and braided trunk of the Money Tree fit well with modern, minimalist decor. Use a simple, contemporary pot to complement its striking appearance.

The Money Tree, with its unique braided trunk and lush, glossy leaves, is a fantastic addition to any plant collection. Its elegant appearance and relatively easy care requirements make it a favorite among plant enthusiasts and interior designers looking to add a touch of tropical charm and vibrant greenery to their spaces.
