Caring for a Money Tree

Pachira aquatica
Money trees are fast growing plants. Please keep money trees indoors in a well lit area. Brief sunlight exposure and light watering will keep the plants healthy. Let the plant dry out completely before each watering as too much water can cause the roots to rot. Money trees rarely need watering more than once a week and in winter you may need to wait 2-3 weeks. Test dryness by inserting your finger in the soil; if it’s still damp, don’t water yet. Old or damaged leaves may be cut off and new ones will grow soon. There is more detailed information on our Money Tree Care Sheet (PDF) included with every order.
