Money Trees, aka Pachira Aquatica, are considered a symbol of luck and prosperity. The braided money tree as we know it was actually first cultivated by a truck driver in Taiwan, and quickly became popular in Japan and East Asia, also becoming associated with the Chinese practice of Feng Shui. Their shiny green foliage gives that perfect tropical feeling.

Care Guide

How to take care of Money Tree

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They 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.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.

Central and South America

This is a Money Tree, also known as Pachira Aquatica. They get their common name and popularization from Feng Shui practitioners who believe that they will bring prosperity and good luck to their owners. This legend derives from the fact that they grow five, glossy leaves in a star-shaped formation on each stalk, of which there are also five braided together—five being an important number in Feng Shui since it represents the five elements: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. These braids are believed to help lock in the good fortune and, as your plant grows and matures, they will get thicker and thicker, eventually fusing together. To ensure this good fortune for the long term, keep your Money Tree in a brightly lit location that does not receive direct sunlight, such as a North or East-facing window, and water when the soil is about half dry. It is very important to avoid any exposure to cold or hot drafts as this could upset your plant and cause it to shed its leaves.
