Planting & Care
Plants are often grown as bonsai specimens and house plants, being very tolerant of drought and shade.

Sunlight: Full sun to partial shade.

Soil: Plant the tree in peat moss with some gritty sand.

Water: These plants like a moderately humid room and deep but infrequent watering. Water the plants until the water runs from the drainage holes and then let them dry out between watering.

Temprature: The best temperatures are 60 to 65 F. (16-18 C.).

Fertilizer: Remember to fertilize every two weeks as part of good money tree plant care. Use a liquid plant food diluted by half. Suspend fertilizing in winter.

Care:
  • If your home is on the dry side, you can increase the humidity by placing the pot on a saucer filled with pebbles.
  • Keep the saucer filled with water and the evaporation will enhance the humidity of the area.
  • The plant should be repotted every two years in a clean peat mixture.
  • Try not to move the plant around a lot.
  • Money tree plants dislike being moved and respond by dropping their leaves.
  • Also keep them away from drafty areas.
  • Move your Pachira money tree outside in summer to an area with dappled light, but don’t forget to move it back in before fall.
  • The Pachira plant rarely needs to be pruned but as part of your annual money tree plant care, take off any damaged or dead plant material.
