Braided Money Tree Care Information
Last Updated: 03/11/2011

  • The Pachira Aquatica (Money Tree) is a very hardy plant that can withstand low light conditions and infrequent watering.
  • We recommend watering the tree whenever the soil looks dry but the soil should not be overly moist. Depending on the conditions, this may be once a week or once a month. However, the plant can still do well without much water at all.
  • Avoid direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as this will cause the leaves to burn and turn slightly yellow.
  • We recommend fertilizing your money tree with a liquid fertilizer.
  • The money tree can be pruned by cutting off the stems, new growth will appear at the cut over time.
