Pachira aquatica is a sought-after tree that adapts extremely well to being grown indoors. Under fengshui, a properly placed Pachira aquatica in the home or office will create positive energy/chi, bringing prosperity and good luck. As a result, the Money Tree is a fashionable gift for birthdays, weddings and housewarmings.
This delightful Money Tree has a central trunk of several stems braided together to lock in the good fortune. The top of the Money Tree has the 5-lobed leaf arrangement also considered lucky. Other names include Malabar or Guiana Chestnut, French Peanut, Saba Nut, Dollar Plant and Provision Tree.
Please note: some leaf loss and stem damage may occur during transit despite our best efforts due to the fragile nature of the stems. This is a fast growing plant and will quickly regenerate new stems during the growing season. Plants are often trimmed back during the winter months in order to encourage good foliage development the following year. The amount of braiding will depend on the maturity of the plant.
Feeling the burn! Even plants suffer sunburn, symptoms include white dried areas on the leaves. Your plant will thank you for some more shade.
A new leaf of life! Use a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust from your Pachira's leaves, and set its vibrant colour free.
Perfect business partner! The Money Tree loves fluorescent lights, like those typically used in offices and similar workspaces.
