4-5 ft Pachira Aquatica "Money Tree" in large Vintage Shanxi Ceramic Pot


Pachira aquatica, commonly known as the Money Tree or Guiana Chestnut, is a popular houseplant known for its braided trunk and distinctive leaves. Here's how to care for it:

  1. Light: Place your Money Tree in bright, indirect sunlight. It can tolerate some direct sun but avoid harsh, intense light that could scorch its leaves.

  2. Temperature: Money Trees prefer warm temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). Protect it from drafts and cold temperatures, as it is sensitive to chilly conditions.

  3. Watering: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out before watering. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure proper drainage and let the pot drain thoroughly after watering. Reduce watering during the winter months when the plant's growth slows down.

  4. Humidity: Money Trees can adapt to average indoor humidity, but they appreciate higher humidity levels. Regular misting or placing the plant on a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles can help maintain adequate moisture.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix that retains moisture without becoming waterlogged.

  6. Pruning: Prune your Money Tree to maintain its desired shape and remove any dead or yellowing leaves. You can also pinch off new growth to encourage bushier growth.

  7. Pest and Disease: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and scale. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

  8. Braiding: If your Money Tree has a braided trunk, be careful not to damage the braid while caring for the plant. Gently adjust the stems if needed to ensure they grow evenly.

  9. Tips: Remember that every plant's environment is unique, so closely observe your Money Tree and adjust care as needed based on its specific conditions.
