Planting and care

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

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
A Money Tree grows best in medium to bright indirect light. This plant even does well under fluorescent lights. Plant the tree in peat moss with some gritty sand. 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. The best temperatures are 60 to 65 F. (16-18 C.). 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.

Caring for Pachira Money Tree

    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.
