Money Tree for Sale: Overview

The Money Tree (Pachira aquatica) is a beautiful plant with glossy, deep-green leaves. It has a woody trunk formed by several intertwining stems, giving it its unique braided shape. The money tree plant belongs to the Malvaceae family, which includes a variety of plants from flowering mallows and Hibiscus to edible plants like okra and cacao. Pachira aquatica originates from the swamplands of Central and South America. Growing in the wild, this hardy plant lives for decades, often reaching up to 60 ft. in height. As an indoor plant, the money tree can reach 8 ft. tall. It loves bright, indirect light and enjoys some extra humidity. 

The Pachira money tree is an ideal low-maintenance plant for homes with cats and dogs, as it’s non-toxic to pets. Moreover, this lovely indoor tree is considered one of the most powerful luck-bringing plants in Feng Shui. It is associated with prosperity and good fortune, making it the perfect gift plant to convey your best wishes on various occasions, including weddings, moving into a new home, or starting a new job.

Money Tree Care Guide

Although the Pachira plant isn’t fussy, knowing the basics of money tree care is essential to keep your plant happy and thriving: 

Watering

While the money tree likes to be watered consistently, ensure the soil doesn’t get soggy by providing good drainage.  For the best results, use filtered or distilled water. Only water your money tree when the top 2-4 inches of soil are completely dry.

Light and Temperature

The Pachira plant prefers bright indirect light, as direct sunlight can scorch its leaves. It grows best at room temperature, from 65°F to 75°F. If you want to grow your money tree plant outside as a porch plant, keep it in partial shade and move it indoors when night temperatures are expected to fall below 50°F.

Humidity

The money tree requires some extra humidity. Place a pebble tray under the plant’s pot or mist your plant occasionally to increase moisture in the air around it. You can also group your plants to help them benefit from the transpiration of other plants, creating a microclimate of their own.

Soil, Repotting, and Fertilizing

When you get a Pachira aquatica tree, you don’t need to transplant it immediately. In the spring, repot your money tree into a pot 2 inches larger than the previous one. Ensure the pot has enough drainage holes, and use a well-draining potting mix. Add perlite to enhance drainage. The money tree plant doesn’t require frequent repotting, and if you don’t want it to grow large, keep it in a smaller pot. Feed your Pachira aquatica twice a month with a balanced liquid fertilizer at half-strength during the growing season.

Propagation

You can propagate your money tree plant from cuttings in early summer. Place the cuttings in a transparent vase filled with water until roots develop. Then, plant the young money trees in well-draining soil. Braiding your propagated cuttings is easy. Choose at least three young plants with flexible trunks and weave them gently together. Then, tie them with a ribbon at the top to let your braided money tree adjust to its new shape. 

Pruning, Cleaning, and Common Issues

Prune off any damaged or wilted leaves to promote the growth of new leaves. Some common money tree issues include browning leaves due to underwatering. An overwatered plant, on the other hand, shows signs of yellowing leaves. Pest infestations are another common problem with Pachira aquatica plants.

    As Nice As Lively Root's Ad

    My plant arrived packaged with care and in perfect condition. Although I will need to re-pot it, it's in the corner where it will live.

    Wonderful Plant and Company

    The money tree plant is great! It ships from California to Florida. Well packed and looks great. I bought the small one too see how it would go. It delivered today and it was packed great and looks wonderful. I placed another order today for a medium money tree to sit next to the small one. Can't wait to get my second order and many other orders to come.

    Twisted perfection

    I really love how the roots are twisted around each other. My baby tree has a noticeable lean to it. A few of the leaves are brown and falling off, I am hoping it was just from the transport and it will take off.

    Love the plant! Yes, it’s small but that’s one of the things I like about it! Love watching my plant babies grow ! This one appears to be healthy. I went ahead and transplanted it because it came in a tiny 4” pot. It had hardly any roots so now I see why it was planted like that. I’m happy with it and you will be too! Go ahead! Pull the trigger…..and buy it!
