Pachira aquatica ‘Money Tree’ Braided

SIZE: 6 inch

Light – Outdoors, money trees can tolerate direct sunlight, but indoors they should be placed in bright to medium indirect light, for at least six hours a day. They will also do well under fluorescent light.
Soil – A well-draining, nutrient-rich potting soil is best for money trees. A peat moss-based mixture would be ideal, but a standard quick-draining soil mixture such as regular cactus or flower soil, will also work. If the soil requires more drainage, you can amend the mixture with sand or gravel.
Water – Money trees should be watered regularly, each time the top inch of soil is dry. Typically, they will require more frequent watering in the spring and summer months and should be watered less frequently in the fall and winter. While money trees thrive with lots of water, be careful not to overwater them, as doing so can quickly kill them. The best way to avoid overwatering your plant is to ensure that the potting container and the soil have the proper drainage.
Temperature & humidity – Money trees appreciate mild temperatures and high humidity. Generally, they should be kept between 65- and 75-degrees Fahrenheit, and not placed near any warm or cold drafts. Since home environments are typically dry, you can increase humidity around your money tree by placing it on top of a pebble tray filled with water, misting the leaves regularly, or using a small space humidifier.
Fertilizer – Fertilize your money tree monthly throughout the spring and summer, when the plant is actively producing new leaves, and bi-monthly throughout the fall and winter. A basic fertilizer blend that has been diluted to half-strength will work best.
