Commonly called the Money Tree, the Pachira aquatica is undoubtedly an indoor plant which brings a tropical feel to any room where it set. Fast-growing and round-shaped, its stems can each produce up to 9 bright green leaflets.

The Pachira will thrive when placed where light is indirect though not too intense. It also appreciates being misted regularly, especially in winter.

MAINTENANCE

The Pachira prefers being given a drink when its soil dries up to the first third of the pot and for its leaves to be misted. It may drink more or less depending on the humidity level of the room as well as the season. However, its leaves will turn brown and shrivel up if it is too cold in the room of if the roots are left sitting in water.

When you take possession of your plant, make sure you assess its watering needs. Before you give it a drink the first time, check the soil’s moisture level to verify whether or not it is moist near the surface. It is best to aerate the soil before the initial watering since it is often compacted to avoid shifting during transit. This also allows it to breathe and release moisture.

Rotate your plant periodically in order to encourage an even growth. Cleaning the leaves regularly will stimulate proper photosynthesis. As you wipe the foliage, inspect the leaves on either side to make sure there are no pests.
