$12.99

Pachira aquatica is a commonly found houseplant called a money tree. The plant is also known as Malabar chestnut or Saba nut. Money tree plants often have their slender trunks braided together, and are a low maintenance option for artificially lit areas. Money tree plant care is easy and based upon just a few specific conditions. Let’s learn more about how to care for money tree houseplants. Pachira Money Tree Money tree plants are native from Mexico to northern South America. The trees can get up to 60 feet (18 m.) in their native habitats but are more commonly small, potted ornamental specimens. The plant has slim green stems topped with palmate leaves.

Watering Needs

Also called water chestnut, Guiana or Malabar chestnut, money tree or saba nut, pachira is happy with regular, deep watering or even flooding now and then if you plant it near a creek or stream. Give both indoor and outdoor plants a deep soaking at least once a week or more if the weather is very hot and keep the soil consistently moist. Dropped leaves could indicate that you are not watering often enough to keep the soil evenly moist.

Light Needs

Pachira grown outdoors prefers full sun to part shade and will even grow in full shade. Keep an indoor plant where it will get bright light for most but not all of the day. Rotate an indoor plant by a one-quarter turn once a week to keep it balanced and to avoid its leaves reaching for the light from only one side.
