Money Tree

(20 customer reviews)

Scientific Name: Pachira aquatica

Common Names: Money Tree, Guiana Chestnut, Luck Tree

Overview: Pachira aquatica, commonly known as the Money Tree or Guiana Chestnut, is an ornamental plant with an interesting appearance and cultural significance. Native to Central and South America, this tree features a braided trunk, which is believed to bring good luck and prosperity according to folklore. The Money Tree has glossy, palmate leaves that give it a tropical appeal. It can reach a height of up to 20 meters when grown outdoors, but it is often kept as a smaller potted plant indoors. Pachira aquatica prefers bright, indirect light and regular watering, allowing the soil to partially dry out between waterings. This plant is relatively easy to care for and is known for its air-purifying qualities. With its unique trunk and lush foliage, the Money Tree is a popular choice for home and office environments, adding a touch of greenery and charm to any space.

    I ordered the largest money tree plant available, and due to Covid, it arrived a late. That was at the point when transport was inundated with shipments, so not a big deal. The tree had a few yellow leaves and shed a bit in the first week.
    However, since placing it in its home in the sun, this baby is thriving!!! It is growing lovely new leaves weekly and has grown another 5-6 Inches since it arrived in June. It is exactly what we hoped for! Thank you.
